A= being an employee MY CLAIM B= self-employment
RA1= fixed working hours RB1= independence ATTACKINGB1= stress
RA2= maternity/sick leaves RB2= skill ATTACKING B2= workloads
Over the last__FEW YEARS/10YEARS/DECADES__ there has been much controversy as to whether it is better to _A=_BE AN EMPLOYEE_ or to_B= _BE SELF-EMPLOYED_. Many argue that __B= BEING A SELF-EMPLOYED_ is by far the best option, while others claim that _A= _BEING AN EMPLOYEE_ has more pros than cons. In this essay, I will analyze the pros and cons in order to come to a conclusion.
Undoubtedly, B=_SELF-EMPLOYMENT_ can be a great way to _R1B=_BE INDEPENDENT_ and (to)_R2B= _BE MORE SKILLFUL. It's a well known fact that _B= SELF-EMPLOYMENT_ offers you the possibility of __R1example= PLANNING YOUR WORK IN YOUR OWN WAY WITHOUT TAKING ORDERS FROM SOMEONE ELSE_ . There is also the cliché that _B= BEING A SELF-EMPLOYED__ is great because _R2example= _YOU FEEL RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ACTIONS WHICH MAKES YOU WORK IN AN EFFICENT WAY WITHOUT GETTING STUCK IN A RUT_ .
However, when analyzed in more detail, __B__ can also be a great source of _PROBLEMS/STRESS/INCONVENIENCE/TROUBLE_. if we look closer, we will realize that ___B=__BEING A SELF-EMPLOYED_ isn't actually all it is cracked up to be. For one thing, __B= SELF-EMPLOYMENT__ may (cause)__ATTACKINGB1=_STRESS_ . We shouldn't forget either that _B=SELF-EMPLOYMENT_ could very easily lead to _ATTACKINGB2=_HEAVY WORKLOADS__ .
On the other hand, ___A=_BEING AN EMPLOYEE_ offers you a far wider range of possibilities when it comes to _RA1= __FIXED WORKING HOURS__ or _RA2=_MATERNITY/PATERNITY OR SICK LEAVES__.
Take for instance _RA1=_FIXED WORKING HOURS_. Experience shows that __EMPLOYEES CAN LEAD A QUIET LIFE AFTER THEIR WORKING DAY WITHOUT WORRYING ABOUT THE WAY COMPANY WORKS__ . Another major advantage is that if you should need _RA2=_MATERNITY OR SICK LEAVES_ , all your needs would be met.
To sum up, even though __B= BEING A SELF-EMPLOYED__ has some advantages like _RB1=_MORE INDEPENDENCE or _RB2=_ SKILL_, it can also cause _ATTACKB1=___STRESS_____ and _ATTACKB2=___WORKLOADS__ . Besides, the fact that __A= BEING AN EMPLOYEE_ allows you to _RA1=_MORE RELAX BECAUSE OF THE FIXED WORKING SCHEDULES_ AND OFFERS _RA2=__A SECURITY RELATED TO LEAVES _, makes it quite clear that __A= BEING AN EMPLOYEE_ constitutes the best option by far.
