When contractors were specialists and could demand premium rates, it was one thing. Now I see a number of contractors who are seeking contract jobs because they don't have employment. I believe these contractors earn less than they did when they were employed. I would also like to know how many employee jobs have become part-time. It's one thing to have a full-time job paying $15 an hour, which is bad enough, and quite another to have a part-time job paying $15 an hour with an average work week of 20-30 hours.
