I own a furniture assembly business and work as a residential home inspector. I enjoy being an independent contractor in these lines of work because I have lots of flexibility with my time and income.
What I want lawmakers to know: I think that legislation to help exploited, misclassified workers is great, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Don’t assume that we are all employees until proven otherwise. I am not the same as a misclassified worker. We should not be in the same pool.
