Here is an exact quote from a comment on one of my Facebook posts about WordPress development and freelancing.
Been in the business 20 years. WordPress has always attracted the low end client. When a client comes to us saying “We want to use WordPress” it’s coded language for “We have no money and we know WP is cheap”.
Is this true? Does WordPress only attract cheap clients? Or, is RIGHT NOW the best time ever to be a WordPress freelancer?
