I've suddenly gotten a bunch of offers for temporary contracts as a W-2, not as a 1099. In the past, companies have given me the option and I always take 1099 since I have business expenses. Now it seems like all people want to hire as is as a W-2. Is this a new thing?
I feel like I'm being scammed as I don't get benefits and now I can't deduct any business expenses. It's the worst of both worlds. Any advice to convince companies to go with a 1099 contract?
