Right. You were employed by a third party, who then was contracted by Ford to provide work. That’s perfectly legitimate. The situation described in the article, and what I experienced firsthand is different. I was working directly for CBS, using their equipment at their offices, scheduled full time 40+ hours a week. And they labeled me a “contractor” to avoid paying any payroll taxes, or to provide me with any overtime pay or benefits. It’s wrong, and illegal.

On this issue, I agree with you.
Not that it gives me any pleasure whatsoever to do so.
