Deep Thought

-- by Dave Johnson

Contractors don't get unemployment pay. A significant portion of the workforce has been called contractors instead of employees in the last several years, allowing the corps to get out of responsibilities they would have if the same people were called employees.

This is going to have an effect on efforts to revitalize the economy. For example, extending unemployment benefits won't help them.
