Because if you make over $600 in a year with any one company they have to report that to the IRS.
They collect your SS# so they can track the money they pay you by your SS#. They also verify your SS# in some case to be sure you are who you say you are.
I think it is also to verify you are eligible to work in the U.S.

Equal rights for others does not mean fewer rights for you. It's not pie.

All good points. Do they have some sort of software program to see if they are legit SS#s?
Even if you don't make $600 per year they need to track it and send totals paid out to the IRS. They would need the documentation in case the IRS came knocking on their door about their basis for the totals.

It also is used to show that one person doesn't have multiple accounts to avoid rotation issues.

I am not sure what exactly they do to verify, but I know from some companies, I have received error messages that they are unable to verify my SSN.

You are thinking of an I-9. You need to fill this out if you are an "employee". Contractors are not required to have an I-9.
