The New York Times wrote an interesting article on The Allure of the Tool Belt. We’re not so sure we agree with everything that’s been said. If a relationship is in trouble, the contractor isn’t more likely to be involved in an affair anymore than a co-worker or anyone else. We understand the reasoning behind the allure of the capable and “fix-it” man but it also takes a contractor willing to risk losing his job and possibly more by getting involved with his client. Like any work situation it’s best to keep it professional.
