Other opinions may vary, but I think that's a bit of
an unsavory surprise on the part of your recruiter.
That little tidbit should have been made clear up
front, and I would wonder whether this recruiter has
other little surprises waiting for you.

I just negotiated an hourly rate on W-2. The recruiter
just called to notify me that the rate would be on a
1099. As far as I know, I would have to pay an
additional 7.5% for SS taxes plus they get out of
paying unemployment tax of 10 to 15%. Is there
anything else I need to be aware of?
