For MTSOs selling their MTs out to Nuance and M*Modal... - MET

this is unfortunately the perfect description:

"For Borland, a new full-time job left her in the same chair but without a livable income." "As a UPMC employee, she had earned $19 per hour, enough to support a solidly middle-class life. Her first paycheck at the per-line rate worked out to just $6.36 per hour—below the minimum wage.'I thought they made a mistake,” she said. “But when I asked the company, they said, ‘That’s your paycheck.’”

"Nuance, her contract employer, declined to answer questions on Borland’s situation."

It's a good article, though Weil sounds like he was the guy who would have helped the most (he saw the importance of additional investigators for the misclassification of Independent Contractors).

But maybe there's hope? "The agency has also continued to renew agreements with states to share information and resources over misclassification cases, a tactic predating Weil that is generally believed to strengthen enforcement. Roughly three dozen states now have agreements with the Department of Labor, an indication that states are taking the issue seriously as well."
