The Rise of the Hired Gun

Recently, something that I’ve been noticing come up in conversations here
and there in the industry is an exodus of senior installers leaving their
long-term employers and setting themselves up as freelancers, often
subcontracting themselves back to their own former bosses.

Subcontractors are nothing new, obviously. But what makes these freelance
installers stand out to my mind is that, despite being located far and wide,
they share some common traits: they’re senior techs, often with as much as
ten years or more of field experience
