Trouble getting paid? You're not alone.77% of freelancers have been stiffed by a deadbeat company. It's not your fault. The Department of Labor makes sure W–2 employees get paid, while freelancers have to sue for their check or just walk away.
We're 30% of the workforce; it's time to change the game.
