Worth noting that jobs usually have benefits attached, in America the benefits are usually worth about double the salary (insurance, etc) so the freelance rule of thumb is to triple your base hourly rate if you're not getting benefits - just money because you're self-employed. So for things like this you need to cut to 1/3 when comparing against a job.

In America, $45 an hour freelance is like minimum wage with a job that has insurance and other benefits.
