Did you resign or were you RIF'd, and are you collecting unemployment?
Do you have other income if you don't take this?
What will the local market support?

If your $22/hr salary (plus benefits if you were getting any) was competitive
for your local market, it's unlikely that you could get more than $30/hr as a
contractor. OTOH, if being told to save for taxes means the offered rate is
1099, if you have any imagination at all you should be able to come up with
about $5/hr in Schedule C deductions.
