Forgive the diversion of this thread. I've just recently started
contracting, and would be interested to know if 2% is a valid estimate
of the number of companies out there who are bad to work for. Could some
of you long-time contractors put a real percentage on the number of
no-pays ( or fight-to-get-paid) companies?

How do you minimize the chances of this happening?

Thanks in advance - this group is always so helpful!
