But I guess you could say that about any part of the computer industry nowadays.
Thats exactly it. The issue certainly is not a lack of work. Its just an overly saturated market with, to be honest, a lot of 1 dimensional people.
You either have to be extremely good, very lucky or have an in with some large clients in order to freelance as a Graphic Designer.
Thats why most people couple it with Web/Print/Video/Advertising in order to build out a niche. Same thing with any industry, you have to specialize if you want to make more money.
