I think its all good as long as there is *real affordable* healthcare.
I mean like $40-$50 a week healthcare and not $600+ a month healthcare.
And maybe some sort of gov't pension and disability program that exceeds the payout of Social Security.
What is good about this 1099 style of working is that it affords you some sort of freedom.

1099's allow a corporation to use employees but without the need to cover them as employees, shifts the SS tax burden onto the contractor, and removes all legal/healthcare liability from the corporation onto the contractor. Just remember 1099 contractors, there are no legal recourse for firings, discrimination, taxes, healthcare for injuries, worker's comp for work you do as an independent contractor. YOU are your own employer, after all, that company you might be doing work for has no obligation to you at all under this arrangement.
They aren't their own employer the one who contracts you still can fire you without notice and force you to train your replacement

In most over populated developing countries they are hiring only college grads and only for 6 month contract. At the end they hire new employees. This way they pay no SSI no benefits and because of the high population they have a never ending supply of workers graduating every year by the thousands. This is what the world is coming too.

I made my money and survived until I have the job I have now. Like I said, earlier I was working bar trivia for a while. I was busing tables for a while too. I just don't want to do sales anymore, because I don't make any money. I can't count the number of times I didn't hit incentives for quotas at BoA and just got my base pay instead of a commission. Of course it didn't help that the quota kept going up month after month, and I was working at BoA in 2007. So we all know how this story ends.

Why would a guild system be needed. Myself and hoards of others like me insure ourselves. I set aside money to cover myself for any and all emergencies, and collect interest on that sizable savings. Why would I give any money to a corporate or government entity that in the end won't really take as good care of me as I would
