The US Bureau of Labor Statistics CONFIRMS Independent Contractors Prefer IC Status -More FACTS Lorena Gonzalez Didn't Bother Researching
by Peter G. Kalivas
Feel Free to read this 2018 info from the US Bureau of Labor (FEDERAL) Link: https://www.bls.gov/news.release/conemp.nr0.htm
Independent contractors were more likely than those in traditional arrangements to be in management, business, and financial operations occupations; sales and related occupations; and construction and extraction occupations.
Independent contractors overwhelmingly prefer their work arrangement (79 percent) to traditional jobs.
Fewer than 1 in 10 independent contractors would prefer a traditional work arrangement. (See table 11.)
Benefits of Contingent (Temp, Independent Contractors) Workers Contingent wage and salary workers were half as likely to be covered by employer-provided health insurance as non-contingent workers (full time employees).
One-fourth of contingent, IC workers had employer-provided health insurance in May 2017.
Although most contingent workers did not receive health insurance from their jobs, a substantial share--3 in 4--had health insurance from some source, including coverage from another family member's policy, through a government program, or by purchasing it on their own.
YOU GUYS, this EFFORT to REPEAL AB5 is NOT OVER, we must NOT STOP.
If the REPEAL Fails then we must support the ballot in NOVEMBER with the public vote.
I get it, we have to work, make money, etc. This took me 5 minutes to research and disperse. KNOWLEDGE is POWER, facts are our friends.

We're a loose coalition of freelancers and independent contractors trying to centralize information about AB5 and empower ICs across the state to fight for their livelihoods. We tell stories and make plans.
