Atlanta, GA, July 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- With the number of jobless Americans still on the rise, a startup company in Atlanta wants to be the tiny fish that feeds the multitude by offering all of them a source of income. Is it legal? Yes.
2PONS Magazine, a printed coupon publication, launched its "Now Hiring 15 Million" website last week and plans to hire any unemployed U.S. resident as an independent sales contractor as long as they have access to a computer with high speed internet and a phone with an unlimited long distance service plan. No investment is required and the applicant can start immediately. Sales or marketing experience is not a factor because the company believes all Americans can sell a product or service.
"Selling is this country's oldest profession. Americans start selling in elementary school," says company president Matthew Jameson. "Remember those chocolate bars, greeting cards, gift wrapping paper and magazines you sold when you were a little? Everyone in America knows how to sell something!"
2PONS wants the Now Hiring 15 Million campaign to encourage other small businesses to use independent contracting to ease the unemployment dilemma in the country.
"If companies would contract more Americans to work for them independently, everyone would win in some way," says L. Johnverrell, the company’s sales manager for the Atlanta market.
In just a few days 2PONS has already recruited nearly two hundred independent sales contractors, and Atlanta businesses are learning more about 2PONS from their phone calls. Johnverrell says that the independent sales contractors are excited about having an income opportunity on their terms. She hopes that the mass independent contractor hiring by 2PONS will send a message to the small business world that non-traditional staffing may be the key to both survival and getting income to unemployed Americans.
"If there was more independent contracting, Americans would have an income again, and the companies would both make money and save money on high unemployment taxes, social security taxes, Medicare taxes and the lot! We are going to pave the way by independent contracting as many unemployed Americans as we can to work for 2PONS."
