The benefit is simplicity for the employer. Businesses don't pay taxes they collect taxes. The employee pays taxes through payroll deductions - 1099ers pay them directly - the same rates and taxes apply.
The real benefit is when you make enough money that you can hire a tax attorney and can create tax shelters like the 15Foundation.
Sirius pays Robin. Why would she be angry at them?
But the Pelican???? He runs HowardTV and don't pay Robin (or anyone else) a dime for it. Its just Howard who makes marbles. (And Sirius provide free content for MrWig).
Robin's refusal of not being in studio could be a negation ploy with Indemand to get some money from them to use her likeness. This is also shows how stupid the Sirius contracts are. Either Robin or Howard have to do the show in studio. No place is specified. They can stay home legally and do the show. Only reason why Pluggy is in Studio69 is because of his money scheme with HowardTV.
Photography's a joke. Anyone can be a photographer. You do your scary great pictures because you're a professional. I'll take my stupid...automatic camera...take pictures and we'll see if people can tell the difference. - HS, 2-1-02
