Re: Can someone clarify something please?

A contractor can change clients every 6 months. Say if they are (in IT or similar) project starting/completing only. How many businesses need a*new* phone app every 6 months? But many might need extra horsepower to start up their app.

A contractor can move onto the next company, providing a service. An employee, needs to find a new place to work, quit the old one, etc. Much more complex, and harder to pull off. Retrain or lose their job. A contractor is able to provide a different service entirely, thought he job is the same.
