The extraordinary artistic and technological achievements of these people, along with their historical continuity across centuries, have encouraged modern observers to refer to them as a single Andean civilization.
Inca (Inka) before the coming of the Spanish; rather these territories were spread over parts of Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina, and in 1532 they were all part of a single Inca state called Tawantinsuyu, the “Realm of the Four Parts.” Earlier, local hegemonies—some coastal, others centred in the mountains, and still others bridging these geographic barriers—had risen, expanded, and eventually collapsed.
These people weren’t a “business” before, but they are now! And then Arise dictates every aspect of their working time as if they were a paid employee.
Now Arise says, “but you have a flexible schedule, so you’re not an employee.” But this is a lie.
This allows Arise to get away with paying below minimum wage, giving no benefits and paying no taxes on these employees.For most clients there are never enough hours, because Arise is constantly bringing in more people so they can charge them training and application fees, even when there aren’t enough hours for the people already working.Even if the “client” is about to be gone from Arise they’ll still take people’s money and “train” them and then tell them there’s no work 6 weeks later.Arise Virtual Solutions in Mirmar Florida bills themselves a “work at home opportunity” and has workers take calls for large companies like Disney, AT&T, Carnival and Intuit while pretending that they are in a call center.Recently large clients have bailed because Arise was doing a poor job and it was hurting their reputation.The person looking for work is out over a thousand dollars in expenses, plus approximately 6 weeks of unpaid time that they donated to Arise for training, and they’re nowhere.
