As the federal government lurches back to work this week, I’m glad to hear employees will soon be getting their back pay. However, I can’t help but think about all the contractors for whom that won’t be the case. One estimate is that they lost $200 million a week.
As a longtime freelancer, I’ve never had a government agency contract, but I know the awkward limbo of being "not quite an employee."
