There is NO way I'd pay Medium more than $5 per month, the quality just isn't there. There are so many articles that aren't fact checked as well as being full of syntax, grammatical and spelling errors. What Medium needs to change immediately is to make the monthly writer earnings more democratic instead of just ONE writer winning a 'jackpot' of a ludicrous amount of $49k and the other minions only taking home less than $100 per month. This must be very demoralizing for writers! Why can't Medium share the wealth and cap earnings? I don't think it's right or fair that only a top tier of writers are earning more monthly than say health care workers on the front line who save lives daily. It's absolutely ludicrous!
