That is very true. That is why a person needs to understand as a contractor, no one looks out for him but himself.

That law only works for those who are passengers on the bus of work. A good contractor will grab the wheel and drive.

Because every company wants to get you for $7.50 per hour, regardless of what the going rate is.

Oh, absolutely. If that situation happens. My point is that no company is going to pay $4800, $3600 or even $3000 for work it can get for $2400.

What many of you are missing is that a good contractor is a contractor first and writer second. He (she) will know the rules of the game and apply them to his best benefit. You have me on a job where I find I am getting $2400 and prevented from making more, and the guy next to me is making $4800 and can make more if he wants, I'm gone.
