Russian isn't a race, it is an ethnicity, or nationality. It is so unfortunate that this whole "racist" thing has taken over this country. It is a non issue for 95% of people in this country. It really isn't necessary to qualify the statement you made. It was not malicious in any way. You simply stated a FACT. A Russian owned 1099 company. Crazy times we live in. Good luck
Nothing wrong with a 1099 job, in fact you might make more writing off more with your taxes. BUT… you need to be extremely diligent and put money away monthly or start making monthly payments to the IRS so at Tax Time they’re not after your kneecaps. Talk to some other guys there and it should be easy to figure out how much you’ll owe at the end of the year.
Let's see. Working for a company that even before hiring you is telling you they don't care about the law. It's not rocket surgery you know.
Why would you believe that they care about any other laws like hos, maintenance, or even paying you.
