Perhaps we should look at how lawyers structure their revenue and compensation. Forget about the stereotypes of the poor independent contractor vs. the comfy salaried employee*. Look at how the most privileged class of workers choose to compensate themselves when they have the power to write the very laws affecting this issue.

*That's all propaganda issued by regulators, tax authorities and unions. Democrats, who are still upset that Lincoln freed the slaves and can't stand to see people walking around free.
