My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: NA
Who here thinks employees are not paying the WC premiums?
You may be wrong.
For instance, I began work in an industry at 9 dollars an hr. and within 4 yrs. I had gravitated to around 15 dollars per hr. I soon began to realize that my skills could better be capitalized on my own terms. An independant contractor.
After learning that the companies I was working for were charging in the range of $75 to $90 per hr. for my work I wanted that kind of money, who wouldn't.
Some states, not all, require an independant contractor to provide and pay for their own worker's comp coverage. Thing is I was working in many different states, but where do I want to establish my base of operation? Naturally in a state that has no such requirement. I will cover my own personal health care Ins. It's logical.
So, anyone want to comment on where the difference is going?
Let's say an average at $80 per hr. and leaves a gap of around $45-$50 per hr.
Yeah, taxes are only one issue, but that's only about 30%, so now do you think you (as a 'company employed' worker) are not paying your own benefits.
You are now involved in a scam, the Ins. industry scam!
