Should I take the counter

I got an offer from Cox Automotive for 90/hr on W-2. For a contract to hire position. (6 month contract). I took that too my boss to put in my notice. My boss came back with a counter of $120/hr on C2C basis, same six month contract, he says it will extend possibly and all that political jargon. Should I stay with my current employer ? Money was the sole reason for me to switch.

Thanks Fam!

    I'd take it. Why leave for another contract to hire position? Accept the counter offer and take the time to get better offers.

    Once your current company know that you can jump the boat if you find better options, they will pay you more to keep you until they find another good candidate ASAP and then you will be let go. It is known fact.
    So better ask the new company to raise from 90 to 120, as current company is offering, negotiate and move.

      In this case both are 6 month contracts though. So it's not like there's any certainty beyond that anyways.

      But one is contract to hire and another is Corp to Corp. I don’t know what other benefits are, that matter too.
