    The way the agency intermediate the contract and keep control of the business it's old fashion and a proliferation of the "old boys club".

    The payment management is nonsense especially in these times when everything is digitalised. And I would not mind a long waiting time if the client is solvent. Not a thing that you could say about many agencies atm. Especially today.

    What would stop an agency with small overhead and rogue practices declaring bankruptcy while syphoning fees for 1-2months from 100-200-300 contractors? Nothing.
    So, more along the lines of a dating agency - both parties pay a fee to be matched up and then they agree their own terms of engagement?
