Since I have been in your position many times, allow me to give some advice.
As a field manager, I hire short term contractors regularly, and I have had hundreds of them.
Some will play you like a violin, and it immediately hit me that this guy has followed a regular pattern that I have seen many times before. He is a
serial arsehole, and will cause you all kinds of trouble.
He starts work on a lie, he is incompetent, he has most likely seen enough of your operation to either poach some of your work, or tell his shady
mates where your valuables are kept, lastly he resorts to almost blackmailing you to pay him more.
This guy has read you like a book, seen your weaknesses, and struck like a bird of prey on his first day!
Please please please do yourself a favor and let him go.
If you let him win now, he will keep scoring little wins over you, without you even knowing whats going on, until one day he moves on, takes half your
business with him, and leaves you in a big pile of crap, most likely a lawsuit, and even bankruptcy.
There are good guys out there, keep looking, and when you do start someone give them a weeks trial, or even a day, and have a contract too.
And don't expect too much support from ATS, it is one of the most socialist platforms that I visit, where you are just trying to make a living, and
probably care more for your customers than your income, some on here see you as some evil capitalist tycoon, and suggest you should double this poor
They are so far removed from reality, it is a joke.
