After 23 years as an FXG SR contracter I called itquits as of 5-15.Here is what I can tell you people. When it comes to your so called operating agreement remember one thing.... NOTHING'S BINDING! The real reason for the conversion to the so called ISP format in what will be ASAP nationwide is that it is simply a fall back to what they believe to be a more legally defensible position. It may not work because FX's appeal of the Kansas Supreme Court ruling that in Kansas you are an employee no matter how many routes you have was denied by the 7th Us Circuit Court of Appeals. Now if the 7th later this year or early next applys the Kansas ruling to the other 19 states that have been appealed to the 7th then this so called independent contractor format will begin it's death spiral Now if you are going to join up with other contractors then form your own corporation get a good lawyer and a good comptroller because he will handle the money and first and foremost operate as SEPERATE PROFIT CENTERS.Likewise with the temps eliminated you will have to keep extra trucks on premise and extra manpower you can call out on a whim to handle overflow. Remember your entire success is totally dependent on the dumb assumption that there will always be somebody walking through that door psycologically willing and physically able to deliver top of the scale performance for bottom of the scale money.
