You are just working for wages so unless its the only game in town, what's the loss really?
They might be doing you a favor cutting you loose.
I just don't see how a legit contractor can stay in business working 40 hours for around $1500. It's crazy.
Do you just hang around there treading water until a small job comes up to carry you to the next one?
If you like the place so much, you should have applied for the maintenance supervisor position.

You broke one of the first rules of business - don't put all your eggs in one basket. History means nothing. I had a business relationship with one customer for ten years. They spent a lot of time and money training me. I knew them inside out. Then the new boss hired his cousin and I got smoked with a thirty second phone call. To make matters worse, they back charged a bunch of BS and actually sent me an invoice rather than a cheque. I didn't pay.
Eleven years isn't a bad run. Time to diversify. A collection of good, small customers is better than one big one. It's one of the advantages of being in business. We should be able to get fired multiple times and keep on going.
