Re: S/W Engineer: Contractor vs Permanent salary

Because the company did not want an employee. They wanted someone who could be dropped the moment there was no work. They wanted someone who could be drip fed with 1-3 month contracts and sometimes told to take a month or two off, when the workload was low. They wanted someone who required no training. If they had taken on an employee, that employee would be still on the payroll, long after the project ended.
In that case there's no unfairness involved. The contractor in question must have agreed to these terms, right?
