should I have to wait to be paid? Contractors please help?
I guess you would call me an independent sub contractor...I work for a contractor but am not officially an employee. I work for them regularly and depending on the job usually get paid every two weeks sometimes more often if smaller jobs. recently we have done two jobs that the contractor didn't get paid for. It's now been over a month for one and two months for the other and I still haven't been paid for them. Contractor claims they will pay me when the homeowner pays them. I feel this isn't fair to me. I don't really work for the homeowner (or I would have got more money upfront to cover my employees) I also don't have stocks in this company, is it my problem they didn't get paid? I have no contact with homeowner I can't ask for money from them or get reason why not. Am I being unreasonable? Is this common practice? one job was complete the other was not completed and won't be by us but again is that my problem the contractor is having issues with the homeowner?
