This will be my fourth year working for the same guy. We do lawn, snow and some landscaping. When I first started with him I was in a tight spot and needed a job quick and he needed help. He pays me as a sub....I know it's wrong and I'm having a hell of a time keeping my taxes paid. I'm in the hole pretty deep now. So I decided that I'm going to talk to him today. I've printed out the employer costs sheet for him. Link I currently make 15/hr. For him to go legit is another 19.4%. I've brought this up before and we'd talk but then nothing would happen. We are in a small town and the other company in town has no openings. I love what I do but theres no way I can continue. I'm nervous to give him the ultimatum but I have no choice. Other then that he has treated me well. I'm on salary through the winter and only work maybe 40 to 45 days in 4 months. A few jobs we have he has lied to the customer and said that I have private insurance when they ask for his workers comp. He told me once to get private insurance and I said if he'll pay for it then no problem. I'm good at what I do, I quoted a few jobs last year and was right on the money. I can be left alone to grade and prep new home lawns for sod. I'm hoping he'll see things my way but if he doesn't I'll have to go back to factory work. I won't leave the industry totally as I have thoughts of starting my own company. I won't take his customers but I know theres more work in this town then the 2 companies can handle. We are meeting at 9am to get the sweepers ready, when we are done I'll talk to him. Wish me luck.
