I have worked occasionally on contract and/or temporary jobs, although not by choice. A recent one was for K-Force Technology Staffing, in Southfield MI. They offered a job for a month doing PLC program modifications and upgrades at a job site near Toronto. Then I learned that heir customer only planned on a two week job. The plant in Canada wasn't ready, though, and I worked only a week. A month after I returned I had still received no pay, but my credit card bill with all the travel, food and lodging expenses arrived. So I have two recommendations for any others who may find themselves in a similar situation:

Don't finance your own trip. Demand prepaid expenses or the use of a company credit card.

Don't work for K-Force.
