Can a TW contractor win? $30 per hour on a W2
contract equals $30 K per yer as a permanent employee
with benefits. Many untrained customer service reps
make more than that here in Cleveland - and you are
saying (I don't doubt you) that they want experienced

And subtract for any downtime between assignments and
that 30 K per year rapidly drops.

To quote the on-line Contractor's Handbook: "...if [a]
contractor employee were to use an agency to locate
their next assignment, they would most assuredly earn
significantly less... in some cases less than half as
much as a permanent employee doing the same job!"
