I don't see tech writers with gainful employment falling all over themselves
to contribute to a fund to help feed, house, clothe and pay doctor bills for
tech writers and their families if they altruistically choose to turn down
underemployment in hard times to serve the interests of "the entire
industry." In the absence of some equivalent of a union strike fund, people
need to make sure their own oxygen masks are in place before attempting to
assist others.
