I own a Flowers' foods bread route. Lately they have been hammering us with tons of tiny accounts we are required to service because it is a national account. Family Dollar and Dollar General being the primary offenders. The problem is that I am making less than minimum wage delivering to each of these dollar stores due to low sales and long check-in times. I have business overhead to pay on top of my own wages.Flowers doesn't care because they don't pay labor due to the independent distributor model. This is a huge conflict of interest. When pressed, I am told, "You have to the take the good with the bad." They argue that since I make a reasonable wage overall, they have the right to require me to service these unprofitable accounts. In the past 5 years my average weekly work load has increased from 50 to 70 hours. My average pay has stayed flat.Do I have some kind of legal ground to stand on here for a lawsuit?

Non-Profit start-up question. What is the fastest and least
Non-Profit start-up question. What is the fastest and least expensive way to begin a non-profit that involves the fewest number of people? I know usually there's a ' board,' etc. I want to start a small arts non-profit and then build it up from there to be able to apply for grants etc. eventually. It would be small to start, and potentially just myself or one or two others included. Is that possible with a very small group, not a big ' board' involved? I know there's a ' state-level' type of filing, and then something called 501-C ?)- but that's about all I know. Thanks.
What tax status would you recommend for a self-employed
What tax status would you recommend for a self-employed consultant in the state of MN? My husband's employer provides subsidized health insurance. My business operated at a loss Q1and Q2. Q3 forecast is 9K gross. (I failed to master this self-employment tax estimating + LLC thing last year, owing IRS $6000. Sigh. Need to get it right.)
