Do contractors today have a sense of commitment to the client?

I thought I had a pretty good week making three contract placements the week before Christmas. Unfortunately two of the three "blew up" because the contractors had a problem with committing through the duration of a contract.

The latest example occurred Friday when our client gave the go ahead to have our contractor start on a 3 month contract. The candidate made a modification to our agreement that would give him the ability to leave with a ten day notice at any point during the contract. When I asked him for a reason, he did not hide the fact that he would jump ship to make more $.

Does anyone else see this occurring with more frequency? Whatever happened to completing the job for which you were hired? How do you protect yourself and your client without walking away from candidates who could care less about completion and commitment to the client?
