I've seen a lot of questionable contracts, but I've never been expected to rent books from my employer.  Also never seen a clause requiring me to pay all the wages if I quit before six months. Not to mention they changed the pay rate from what was discussed on in the "interview".

Article 2 is a setup to avoid calling party B an employee thereby not having to pay healthcare, pension or severance. Some dope is going to sign this and not realize how shit it is until too late.
