this same question has been asked numerous times, but basically most have felt it a waste of time and wouldn't recommend them.

Thanks ... guess I'll have to check it out some time ... like I need to find more ways to goof of
Did you check archives? It seems like I saw something about
them within the past 2 weeks and it wasn't good, but I can't swear to it. 
OTI. The best. Check archives. nm
CHECK the archives on this.
thanks - did check archives, but

did not really get enough good info to make a decision, so am looking for any other MTer's who have had experience with these. 

Check the archives
HUGE discussion that lasted for days just a couple of months ago on this very subject. I think there are even links to a website regarding unionization of MTs, if I'm not mistaken.

Get some coffee and be ready to read for awhile; pros, cons, neutrals, etc., it's all in those threads!
Check the archives and then RUN FOR YOUR LIFE
Check the archives on this company.
ASTAT Transcription--Can't find anything in archives
Any information on ASTAT Transcription?
Check company board for archives.
Search the archives and check the Company board
A lot of MT companies do. I'm not giving any names. Check archives.
hmmm, guess I could check the archives and see how many "original posters"
with similar questions have posted their names? I also don't think the names I posted are that uncommon, and only those who work for DSG would know whom I'm speaking about.  My post certainly did nothing to hurt their reputations--quite the opposite, in fact. 
It'll happen. You'll find your fit.
You might have to kiss a few frogs first, though.
I'll check it out and try it. Thanks for your help!

Thanks...I'll check it out...nm
I'll have to check for the red Q...sm
Honestly it doesn't make sense to me that it is allowed at all.  It seems to me that the fair and professional thing for a company and all MTs to do would be to take the oldest jobs first.  I don't understand allowing MTs to not type all reports.  Sure, you bet I could be more productive if all I did was ER reports and could skip all the OR and psych, but someone has to type them. 
Thanks! I'll check it out. nm
Thanks everyone...I'll check them all out. NM
Thanks! I'll check it out. nm

you're right. She'll find her way over. NM
Thanks, Apple. I'll check it out! nm
I never even thought about that! I'll definitely check that out. Thanks!

Thanks everyone! I'll check out the sites! :) NM
okay I'll double check that - thank you. nm
I'll check with Dept of SS on that and

let you know if it's illegal. My guess is that those restrictions on your income after you retire aren't just put in there to fill blank spaces.  They're there for a reason, and if you thought they were so legal, why are you asking discreetly on this board for suggestions to get around your situation.  If you only wanted info on becoming an IC, you would have just asked for it instead of supplying us with the dirty details. 

I apologize if I seem a little offended at your morals.  I certainly wouldn't suggest that you leave your grandchildren in the street, but I would think there are legal ways to solve this situation, and perhaps some of the people on this board wouldn't have gotten so upset had you just asked for suggestions on your situation rather than how to work the system.

Yes, but you'll probably need to find a smaller MTSO.
Put your resume in the MTstars resume database specifically stating what you're looking for. The smaller MTSOs usually don't put ads in because they don't want to be bombarded with hundreds of resumes. If you leave your info, they'll come to you. I had three independent contractor "p.r.n." or "very part-time positions" this past summer, so the positions are out there. Then I figured since I was already putting in 30 hours between the three, why not just work 20+ hours as an employee? So I am. Good luck with it!
I'll bet you can find one on Ebay cheap.
I've been buying up the antique kitchen gadgets because they work better and cost less than the newfangled junk.
You go, Tinks! You'll have to let us know so we can find it on the internet and see it.

I feel exactly the same as y'all.  I think we could start by sending letters not  e-mails to our respective state legislators.  And it would certainly not be a bad idea to send a letter to the presidential candidates.  I bet Hillary would do something about it.  Anyways I hope she would.  My SIL is Indian.  He was down here last weekend and told me he received an e-mail encouraging him to get into MT for only $450!  he's a bus driver.  Scam, scam, scam.  He also told me that Indians are all crooks, and those are his words.  he told me many stories of people stealing, bribes being expected, etc., even from the law and customs officials and the post office, on and on.  So there ya go.  Some may think our info is safe over there, I think not. 

I have thought about contating our local TV/newspaper for the same reason -- to expose the dirty little secret at the big hospital here in town.

Don't always find errors, but need to be sure, so have to check.
I don't always find errors, but with my personality, I have to check them anyway. Sometimes I do find minor typos. However, there's no way to know for sure without checking.
Thanks for the responses--I'll check out Netflix! nm
Good idea...I'll check into it. Thanks!
Thanks a bunch! I'll check out that link, too.
Thanks for replying. I'll check out 2003.
