The sick thing is that this isn't going away and it will continue to increase. The problem with starting your own business is that others who have the same skill sets can do that also. so it can lower the price of your service if you are doing something to a company say Cummins and one contractor can out bid (come in lower) than you can so all have to try to race to the bottom playing chicken to win the contract. I've heard more than once that it is possible for them to get a contractor to do all their tech work form instrumentation to Mechanical techs etc. etc.. They have done it to Eli Lilly for one and other tech companies.

The only reason they haven't did it is because I believe they would get a major blowback in the Columbus community. But then again the backlash may only last as long as it takes for the company to tell you that you can keep your job but at lower pay and benefits as said contractor employee.

The hatchet routinely fell on personnel from the Data Center several times all last year. Only 50% of the people working there were employees; all others were suppliers and/or contractors. All employees shown the door were swiftly replaced with additional suppliers\contractors. Much less salary and benefits. Suppliers\contractors are dominating the Cummins environment. The Cummins Family!

Are most of those at that Data Center Personnel hourly or is it all excempt. It's funny after the contract is ratified they shutdown the Data Center getting rid of alot of hourly office and only keeping a handful to work from home.

No surprise! They permanently closed the Goody’s office last summer in Columbus, and cut headcount both at the nearby Sears building, and COB as well. Columbus, IN will soon be a ghost town.
