There is a place for independent, self employed professionals, providing consultancy services to multiple customers. However companies have turned this into an employee lite kind of employment. Governments have been fighting back for a couple of decades because it affected their tax revenues, but its only because of the huge number of voters that are now involved that governments are starting to look at the potential for abusive working arrangements.
