What do you make of the rise of self-employed medi-Cal?
An interesting study by the University of Waterloo found that a small but significant percentage of people working for themselves have a vested interest in how the industry evolves.
The research, which was presented to the Society for Human Resource Management’s annual meeting, showed that about one-third of the people who were employed in the field are self-appointed medi-cals.
The study, which analysed the self-employment of 3,100 people, found that over half of them have a significant stake in the way the industry develops.
The data was gathered from the self employed medi cals’ LinkedIn profiles.
It was found that almost half of the participants, 46 per cent, were self-proclaimed medi-casters, while the other 49 per cent were self employed.
This group has the highest stakes in the growth of the selfemployed medi cal industry.
The study found that, while most of them are well paid, they earn less than the average of their peers.
It said that the average salary of a medi- caster is $72,600, while an average employee in the self appointed medi- cals industry is making $72 a week.
The researchers said that they were surprised that the self hired medi calis earn so little.
It is not only because the medics are self appointed, but also because the industry is growing so rapidly.
“Most people working in the industry have little incentive to contribute, as they only see their pay packet after their contract expires,” said the study.
It also revealed that the people self-taught were much more likely to work for themselves, which led to them earning less than their peers in the same sector.
“Our study indicates that self-directed medi- cal work is highly valued by the self established med cals, as self-educated medi-casters earn less,” said Ravi Srivastava, the study’s lead author.
