To anyone looking for contract work in Silicon Valley:

We just got a phone call from a recruiter that HP in Silicon Valley is
looking for Senior Technical Writers to work as W-2 to agencies at
$30-35/hour. The agency told us that HP has recently announced a new
policy whereby ALL contractors must be W-2 to an "approved" agency.

First off, is the agency blowing smoke re: the rate? The going rate for
senior writers in Silicon Valley is double that and then some.

Secondly, can anybody verify what the agency is saying about HP's
policy? They are also saying that Sun has also done the same thing.
