California is beginning to enforce AB5, the 2019 law that is forcing Uber and Lyft drivers and other freelance workers in California to become employees of a company, rather than contractors. Independent Institute Executive Director Graham Walker explains how workers want the freedom to work when and where they want, and companies don't want to bear the costs of onboarding part-time drivers. Exemptions to AB5 have been granted to certain occupations, creating "clients" of the California legislature, beholden to them and the unions who granted them exemption from this restrictive law.
