California's AB5, the law intended to help "gig" workers by mandating they become employees of the companies for which they work, has had unintended consequences. Contracted workers such as nurses, musicians, writers, drivers, have been left with fewer jobs because it's too expensive to hire them as full time workers. Sr. Fellow Bill Evers initiated an Open Letter to California Governor Gavin Newsom and the California legislature to suspend AB5 to allow these workers the freedom they desire in their choice of employment.
