    Philly Inquirer IC story

    A story in Sunday's Inquirer discusses the topic of the independent contractor business model and how it is basically a systematic way for employers to avoid many of the costs historically associated with the traditional employment model. There are 20 pending cases vs. FDX which is the most egregious of all the cases in that they drive FDX-leased vehicles, wear FDX issued uniforms, use FDX hand-held delivery record computers, are dispatched from FDX centers and basically are managed like any other FDX employee.
