Subject: Texas Register recommendations on Independent Contractor eligibility.

CAUTION: Email not from TWC System. Use care when clicking links and
opening attachments.

Political appointees at the Texas Workforce Commission do not have the right to dictate who is
an independent contractor. It does not matter whether employees enter the front door, electronic
mailbox, computer, Internet or mobile phone to work at a job they still should be considered
employees with all the rights and benefits a 9-5, 40 hour a week employee has. Employees who
are directed on how to do a particular job, by their employers, are employees and are due all the
benefits an employer should be offering.

TWC should not be a mouthpiece for unscrupulous employers who want to escape any and all
obligations to employees who rightfully deserve to receive benefits they work for. Anything else
hints at indentured servitude status for the American worker who deserves better. TWC should
represent the hard-working Americans who made this country great not some 'profit at all costs'
company whose only concern is the bottom line. People first, companies second.
