I've known for years that agencies don't care for anything other than getting their cut. The problem is that I'm doing contract work and it's pretty much all only available through agencies. There are several large employers in my area that pretty much only bring in contractors and their master vendors put the requirements out to a boatload of agencies and it seems like the agencies that I've worked with in the past and respected are no longer on the lists. So knowing nothing about the dozen or so agencies that contact me, it's just poke and hope.

Best Regards,

Mike

I agree with Gene 100%. I stopped using agencies a long time ago for similar offenses. In the end, they don't care about the people they're placing; they just want their cut.

Just as a matter of principle, I would tell the offending agency
to withdraw their submission of my resume. Even at a higher rate,
I wouldn't reward them for their behavior. Whether you would want
to allow them to represent you in the future is another question. I wouldn't.

If you've worked for the client company in the past, you might
want to contact someone there directly and let them know who is
and is not authorized to submit you for contract assignments.
