1099 or Employee

Got the below email. You gotta laugh and shake your head on this one.

First Allegiance is pleased to announce our new program that we are conducting in New Jersey for our current vendor network. The gist of this program is to have your crew(s) permanently assigned to First Allegiance via this program.

In other words, "you no longer have a company. We're taking over thank you."

o Monday through Friday if needed must be available to work weekends and holidays (excluding but not limited to Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s)
o Report at first property by 7 am
o Leave last property by 4:30 to travel back to FA Headquarter in Bayonne, NJ
o Average work day: 10 hours a day
o Average time per property: Depends on work required per property
· Compensation:

o 1099 vendor of First Allegiance
(We control ALL of your work day but you're not an employee????)

o $*****per week (5 days) Monday through Friday
§ Lead - $*****.00 per week
§ Helper - $****.00 per week
§ Gasoline cost - $****.00 per week (must be available to travel throughout state of NJ)
§ Vehicle wear and tear - $***.00 per week
o NJ Tolls: First and last one of the day is on the contractor, we reimburse all others.

I'm sorry but that sounds a little E''leegallll

I got the same email and laughed at it. Forget the 1099 or employee, if I own a truck and all the equipment, as a business owner, I'm not going to work 50hrs a week to receive $800 for my time. My equipment is probably 100k investment at this point, so they can shove it.

$35k for a used F350 diesel
$2k for a 7x16 landscape trailer
$12k for a 61" rider
$3500 for a used 36" stand on

I'm over 50k right there and that doesn't include my 2nd vehicle for winterizations and inspections, or my 2nd small trailer, compressor, generator, gas water pump, hand tools, power tools etc.... the list goes on and on.

It's a screening tool to make sure they

don't get anyone smart enough to hold them accountable for the fun I'm sure they have planned for them in the future.
