Good Intentions, Bad Results

A colleague today mentioned she is working with her employer and the IRS to straighten out her working relationship.  She’s been working as contractor for the employer for several years and for whatever reasons it suits her and her employer.

She said she understands that the IRS is trying to “protect” her from her employer, but in order to maintain the status she prefers the protection is going to make her unemployed for awhile.

This is a great example of good intentions that cause bad results as is often the case with government involvement.  Two parties, her and her employer, have entered into an arrangement willingly and voluntarily for their mutual benefit.

Government should be there to protect us from someone forcing us to do something we do not wish to do, not to protect us from our own decisions.
