I’m retired from law enforcement, and now I work as an interpreter. Various agencies hire me for jobs that last anywhere from one to eight hours.
I enjoy this work, because it lets me have more time to spend with my family. I need to make more money than my pension affords me, as I have just finished putting two sons through college and have another one who is a junior in college. This work allows me to make more money than a regular job would, while at the same time it gives me the flexibility to spend more time with my family than my previous job ever allowed me to do.
What I want lawmakers to know: You appear to be trying to protect some workers, but in attempting to do so, you are destroying the livelihoods of many others.
