    Re: employ / hire

    Hi, Vil! Good to see you, again, lad!

    The short answer is: we 'hire' individuals for short-term work while we 'employ' individuals for longer, more permanent, periods of time. Employees usually receive benefits such as health care, sick leave, and vacation time. Those we 'hire' usually do not receive fringe benefits.

    Cheers,
    Amigo
