California Bill Means 'End for Independent Trucking' in State

In a stupid effort to strike one for the "little guy" by forcing independent drivers to be considered direct hire workers, CA has done to opposite.

They've destroyed the whole concept of the Independent Contractor.

“AB 5 could have been amended to address worker misclassification issues, as well as protect the 70,000 predominantly minority-owned truckers currently operating as independent contractors,” said Shawn Yadon, CEO of the California Trucking Association, in a press release issued by the association. “There is no reason why protecting workers does not include defending the right of tens of thousands of drivers who have built their businesses around the independent owner-operator model, invested hundreds of thousands of dollars in their trucks and have operated their own businesses for decades.”

CA does it again.  Perverts yet another part of their economy.
