I think I remember hearing that the whole 'jew slaves in egypt' thing is only from the bible, with no historical backing.

I understand the historical backing behind that, but honestly I'm not sure if I completely believe it. I mean, who's to say it was really built by contractors? The Egyptians? They've lied before when it made them look better, and think about it: if you left enormous monuments behind which would be the most memorable construction of your culture, would you want to admit it was built by a group of people you believe to be lesser than you? Like I said, they've lied before.

They didn't find evidence that it was purely paid contractors, just evidence that those workers were used. I would think, in all likelihood, that it was a mixture. If you have back breaking work (literally) that needs to get done and a mass of slaves nearby, my doubt is high that they would be entirely against using them in the construction. Maybe the slaves were used to bring the stone to the sight and contractors carved and placed it, who knows, definitively? not us.

Lehner, the guy who made the discovery in Giza that led to the conclusion that paid workers made the pyramids, admits that there were thousands of slaves in Egypt. There are two main discoveries that led to this conclusion: The bones of cattle (which is assumed to only be provided to upperclass egyptians) and the graffiti within the pyramids that describes different groups or unions made amongst the builders of the pyramid. There is actually no evidence that states that these workers were paid, that the majority of them ate the meat from the cattle found, that Giza was a special occasion because of a possible decline in slavery, etc. There are any number of conclusions that can be made, however there are well kept records stating that there was slavery in Egypt, that these slaves helped to build enormous structures (which is widely believed to be many of the pyramids) and that conditions for these slaves were fairly poor (as is to be expected from slave drivers).
tl;dr While there is some evidence in regards to "paid workers" that aided in building the pyramids, the jobs that these workers held is not entirely known, and the evidence leading to the conclusion is fairly open for interpretation.

My brother is an archeologist and informed me that the reason the paid worker thing gets thrown around so often is because the Egyptian government will kick you out of Egypt, and not allow you to be anywhere near their artifacts. If there were slaves in Egypt than the Jews may have some claim to Jerusalem, and the government refuses to give Jerusalem any form of legitimacy, even one so little as this. But it is well known that most of the workers in Egypt were slaves. It’s just not talked about because people who study ancient Egypt like to be able to go there.

Slavery, in the past, wasn't like now. Most of the slaves were workers in exchange of something, food, accomodation,... even money.

Maybe the supervisors, but the general labor that pushed everything around was not. The source of the elbow grease is what he was talking about.

What he said:

The Egyptians had plenty of slaves taken from Nubia, however the pyramids were built by Egpytian, land owning, free people between their 2 anual harvests

I was on a tour guide in Cairo and he told us that it was not slaves nor contractors as you say.
The Nile would flood for about half the year and all the farmers would have their farms completely flooded. They could not make a living then and the pharaoh hired the farmers to build the pyramids in the mean time, so it was mainly farmers.
