The "Open Letter to Suspend California AB-5" that is addressed to California Governor Gavin Newsom and all members of the California State Legislature, calls for the immediate suspension of the law, which prevents individuals from working part time in a variety of indispensable positions, especially during the coronavirus crisis.
