Independent contractors, or "gig" workers have been stifled by California's law known as AB5 which forces these workers to become employees of the organization they work for. Evers initiated an Open Letter to California Governor asking him to suspend the law during the pandemic to allow critically needed workers, such as delivery services and ride share drivers, and some nurses, to continue to work as freelance workers. The Open Letter is signed by over 150 economists, scholars, and political scientists.
