    i really want this job.
    That's what I would do west, dont undercut yourself even if you really need the job, dont forget you have bills to pay as well.
    good luck

    Different states have different laws on what constitutes an independent contractor. Do a search and see what the legalities are.
    NJ requires that you work independently for more than just that company.
    State and Federal governments are cracking down on falsely represented independent contractors.
    If you are welding for a company I would think, if something went wrong, you would be setting yourself up for a Major liability.
    That said, I would ask for at least enough to cover liability insurance, health insurance, vacation, and Social Security/Medicare.

    You have take in to account that he will not be paying
    WC nor taking taxes out etc etc

    Your hourly rate should be considerably higher as an independent
    Since you have to cover the "overhead"

    well, i did give the owner a idea of what i was expecting per hour, but after that he told me there were no benefits, and that everyone was a independant contractor. i am waiting for a call for a hire...if and when they call me i am going to ask what exactly thier term of independant contractor is, and let them know that i will need a higher hourly pay in order to work under that situation. when he asks what i want, i was thinking of asking what the other welder fabricators there are making. should i do that or just aim high?

    Good job? independant contractor?

    I have a oppertunity to take a job for a company as a independant contractor, welding and fabricating. what does that meen? no benefits?, no workmans comp?, no unemployment?, have to pay my own taxes?

    if so, how much more money should i ask for over my origional number in my head that would be with a company not as a independant contractor? thanks
Working...
