Interesting conversation with an agency today. It's one I haven't worked for yet, but have been signed with for a few months. They offered a gig under umbrella. I explained I do not work for umbrella companies. I was interested that the agent didn't bother arguing, and said that lots of people feel the same way and she was reporting this issue to management repeatedly. Maybe the message is finally getting through. They won't offer PAYE, but it appears they are losing a lot of business because of it. Hopefully they will see sense.
