  4. Yes dapat lang po na shoulder ng employer ang brokers fee kz sila nmn ang nangangailngan ng serbisyo ng broker. At sila nmn po ang dapat mag bayad kz wala silang time mag asikaso ng papel ng worker. Kaya inaasa sa broker so dapat sila ang mag bayad.

  5. Dapat sila ang mag bayad kz ang home base d kasama sa standard law pag taas ng sahod hindi kami.kasamang mga caretake pero pag taas ng mga bayarin tulad ng health insurance kasama kami. Tas my broker fee pa na dapat employer ang mag babayad kz sila nmn ang my kailngan ng service ng broker kz inaasa lahat sa broker
