So your are a subcontractor. Market your services to all of his competitors.

You nailed it. He is a good man in a tough situation. Wish he wouldve handled it better though.

Your not technically employed by him if your doing piece work. State law is very strict with there description of an employee and to me it sounds as though your are not an employee but a subcontractor.

It sounds as though this guy is not going to be a good long term source of income for you. At this crossroad in your employment life you must decide if your the kind of guy who is supposed to sign the front of the check or the back of it and get busy doing it.

In Texas, southern hospitality still dictates otherwise.

Divergant forks in the road often stand before all of us. The path we choose is important.... but usually only to us.

"This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man."

Tomorrow, he will look at the reflection in his shaving mirror, and you will be the one looking at the one in yours. Live to like what you see. He already knows what he's looking at.
