No matter what industry you are in there are these type of issues. The only problem I really have is that they say(safeguard, mcs, 5bros) if you do jobs a,b,c you must do d, and e.
D and E are not profitable I say..they say do them or you lose jobs a,b,c as well as any f, g,h jobs that come around.
Even that is understandable..if we dont want to do them ALL, they will find someone that will..its easier for them to give all jobs to one company, then split them up..
However the part that gets me in a tizzy is when they say, if you do not do jobs d and e, we will send another contractor to do the job, and then charge you back.
Thats a load of crap..if I want to turn them down and risk losing all my business then that should be my choice. I always reply with, why are you backcharging, the price you pay them would be the exact same as you will pay me..they say no cuz they have to pay the other contractor an extra "fee". BS I say..I want that extra "fee". In the end we take it up the tailpipe and do it.
But it should be(and maybe it is) illegal to chargeback an independent contractor for not accepting the job...doing the work wrong, fine charge us back..do not accept all the work, the most they should be able to do is take work away.
