Today, one of my coworkers was hired on full time from a contract position. This got me a little bit worried about my future at my current company (explanation to follow).
I was hired back in November 2014 as a sub-sub-contractor (I work for a company A, housed in Virginia, they contracted me to a company B in Washington, who contracted me to a company C where I do the actual programming). My initial contract was for 6 months, so in March 2015, I asked my manager (at C) what the status of my contract was. They decided to extend me until October 2015. Before I got this contract in November, I was on-the-bench, unpaid, for company A for 4 months while they were looking for a position for me (it's in my contract with A that while I'm on the bench, I cannot myself look for employment).
The reason this worried me is because I am locked into a contract with Company A until October of 2016. With this in mind, I'd like to avoid the situation where I'm on the bench for 4 months and not able to pay certain bills again. There are about 4 months until my contract is up. Should I wait until it is closer to the contract end date before bringing up the conversation with my manager at company C?
