By now you’ve probably heard about the “Bubble” scam, in which some MLM companies claim to have hundreds of thousands of workers working for them without paying any taxes.
This sort of scam is a huge issue in India, where many people fear that their livelihoods are being exploited, and the authorities have struggled to crack down.
But what if your employer is a global MLM company?
If you work for a major Indian company and are a part of a global business, the chances are that you’re not going to get paid on time.
This is the story of a couple of recent cases.
A new startup called Tango started in 2014 as a project to connect people with the world of MLM.
The idea was to get people involved with the global business of a company that they didn’t even know existed.
Tango is now the second-largest company in India and employs some 3,000 people.
Its founder, Akshay Gupta, is a software developer in Bengaluru.
He works in a software engineering firm and is in charge of Tango’s operations.
Gupta started Tango to help people with an “unrealistic” perception of their opportunities.
“The market was very unorganised.
There were no clear-cut rules and no clear guidelines,” he says.
“There were no guidelines for what we needed to be able to do and how we needed a business to work.”
Gupta also saw an opportunity to help workers of all ages.
“You need to be a young person with a lot of confidence and a sense of self-worth to go into a startup and realise that you can create your own business,” he adds.
Tangerine Capital, an MLM venture capital fund, helped fund Tango and the startup’s team to launch the startup.
Tango has been running for a year and a half, and Gupta says he is currently in negotiations with a major investor to launch Tango-B, a company based in the United States.
The company is aiming to offer workers as little as $20 per month, a fraction of the cost of what the industry charges workers in India.
Tangerine also offers a platform for workers to upload their skills, and a tool for managers to use to find the best talent.
This enables them to find employees for a job that’s close to their interests and their skill set, and also to get more work done, Gupta says.
In the US, Tango offers a different model of hiring.
“We’re not looking to hire workers who have an unrealistic expectation of what their jobs will be, or who have been hired to a job where they don’t know what they’re doing,” Gupta says, adding that the Tango employees are working in a company called “The One Group”.
They are working for The One Group’s global business and also for the company’s main US office.
Gupta says that, like the Indian workers, they get paid a flat salary for working in the US.
Tangos workers earn between $15,000 and $25,000 per year, depending on the position.
“But we’re not in the business of hiring, we’re in the software development business,” Gupta adds.
Tangos employees are also paid $5 per hour, and are allowed to travel for two weeks in the U.S. at their own expense.
Gupta also says that he believes that his company is not only profitable, but also a great way for young people to find jobs in the MLM world.
TANGOS employees are offered free travel to the US for up to six months.
“It’s a way of building up your confidence,” Gupta explains.
“If you’re a smart and ambitious young person, and you have the skills, it’s a great career option for you.
If you don’t, there’s a chance you won’t be able get any work.
So this is a great option for young workers who don’t have any other options.”
But Gupta is not alone.
“I’m very surprised at the number of MLMs out there,” says Preeti Sharma, who runs a website called Young Indias Indias, which tracks the growth of the global tech industry in India in 2015.
“In the past, people used to get scared of this, and they said, ‘I won’t get any jobs’ and they didn.
But now they’re scared and they’re trying to find other ways of getting work,” Sharma adds.
Sharma is part of the “Young Indias” group, which is a network of young people who are looking to start their own companies.
The group was founded by two young entrepreneurs, Pranab Mukherjee and Rajesh Saini.
Mukherjhi is a serial entrepreneur and Sainlis a technology investor.
Mukerjhi, a PhD student in social sciences at University of Toronto, says that the growth in tech in India is very rapid. “Since
