I am currently working for an MNC but due to some financial, I also had to pick a side job. In this side job (freelancing) client is not paying me on time. The pay date is the 3rd of every month but I have to follow up until the 15th.
He has cut the hourly rate, asking me to spend more hours. Honestly, I can quit this job anytime I want (the contract is pretty flexible) but then I will be losing the money.
He is happy with my work, his boss also knows that. They said that to me many times.
Question: Late payments are crushing the morale, it is very frustrating to follow up every month. What can make him consider the payments as the first priority?
