Increase in SG recruiting

Has anyone else noticed a surge in SG recruitment. I only know of a few message boards and social media places that companies post looking for contractors and I pretty much never saw them post there. And now not only are they posting in those places, but they are calling contractors trying to recruit as well. I have been called several times and know a few vendors in various places across the country being called by them as well.

I wonder what they are up to... but I suspect more fee cuts are being devised by them, knowing that they tend to roll those out in August and September.

Earlier in the year they emailed me a lot.

I finally blocked their emails.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

They are losing contractors because of the increased demands they have out forth. More pictures per job, their apps, and the increased time it takes to input their work.

Now if we only knew all of the websites they post on, we could all educate the others who are not in the know and warn them.

Personally, I think they are chopping fees so they can fund other things because they most likley know the writing is on the wall. Take from you the contractor who actually performs the service and make them selves richer at the investor, insurer and tax payers expense.

Look up safeguardcap dot com. Take a look at the advisers link at the bottom.

GTX also, I am not opposed to giving people an opportunity, so the unemployment office is not necessarily a bad idea at all. In fact I think it is a great idea.

The problem is IF they are going there, they are doing it so they can recruit unknowing people with not the best intentions so they can take advantage of them and avoid the likes of informed contractors who are avoiding the bad companies like the plague. They also have the benefit of informed contractors not being in the unemployed peoples ears to tell them the facts about what is going on and that they are being set up to fail.

The sad part, is that if unemployed people do contract with them, they will at least in part loose any unemployment benefits they rely on to get by. And i specifically mean AFTER the nationals machine chews them up and spits them out, leaving them broke, with a beat up vehicle and equipment and no unemployment insurance safety net.

On another note, several years ago SOFI posted on their website that nationals were going to social security offices to recruit. I don;t know if that was true or if it is still going on, but again same results. take advantage of people who are already in a bad place, only to stick it to them harder.
