the price expresses a point between high enough so you are willing to provide it and low enough for me to be willing to pay it.

are you generally more willing to do a thing that took less time to learn? i don't think that makes sense. that would mean you would be just as willing to do a low-skilled job for low pay as a high-skilled job for high pay.. like if your boss asked you to do his dishes instead of programming, and then pays you less, would you be okay with this?

of course neither the time spent doing a thing nor the time spent learning determine the value of some work. it's about what is the approriate unit to frame a labour contract in. and i don't think time spent learning has any place in that.

(generally speaking, learning should provide more value than the time and energy spent by learning. but again, i think that's besides the point.)

Don't be the product, buy the product!
