Then watch the work go away...

They just keep trying to drive everything underground...

business, but only works for you,  bye bye status... and that includes 
workman's comp, unemployment, withholdings, etc.

Heaven only knows if this is in whatever abomination is finally produced, 
but the intent is definitely to pretty much end this kind of stuff.   One of 
the ways that was in one of the bills, was to force all individuals who work 
under that status to buy insurance.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm......  I feel an increase in the use of the 1099 form would 
be
the easy answer.  I lived as a 1099 for many years.

I'm with you on your feelings of "get all the way in or get all the way
out".  I'd prefer they get all the way in and just do it because, 
honestly,
it will happen in the end anyhow.  Why put it off and cause more 
suffering?
I know, politics doesn't belong here usually and I won't be hit like that
but it is an issue for some of us.  (And as far as I'm concerned they can
give gays marriage also and just get it the heck out of the way finally,
sheeesh!  Why should I be the only one to suffer through marriage???)

But the reality is that many companies are going to go to making who they
can a 1099 contractor and that's going to open up another can of left in 
the
sun worms.

Hi,

What are everyone else's plans if this new health insurance plan gets
passed in Congress? We fall in the 25-100 employee category, so they are
estimating our health insurance costs would go up $412 per employee for
us (we already cover 100% of the costs for our employees). So, basically
this would force us to go to a subcontractor type work-force (at least
for 5-10 of our current employees) to get us under the 25 employee limit
and offer less benefits for everyone in the company.

Once again, it seems our government is stepping in where it doesn't
belong. Either take over the health care system 100% (including funding
it), or leave it alone.
