Re: Converting to Independent Contract and the Non-Compete Clause
you apparently do not understand why you are getting $26/hour and the staffing company is getting $14/ hour more than that.
It is none of your business. You agreed to work for $26/hr and that is what you are getting paid. Then you have to realize the staffing company is paying an employers share of taxes plus they pay into unemployment insurance plus they might offer med coverage, vacation, or paid time off. Those are all costs that they do not get to keep.
then as a business, would you not expect them to make something from finding you the job, maintaining records concerning you, paying all their bills associated with you and hopefully making some amount of profit as well?
anyway, they utilize these non-competes for exactly the reason you present. They did the work of finding the job, hooking you up with them and now you want to run off.
Sorry, it doesn't work that way.
