California Government Outlaws Freelance Work



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

California has outlawed freedom, freedom of choice.  Want to kill baby in California—government says go for it.  Want to write articles in your spare time, drive a ride share, be a trucker—no choice, join a union work for a corporation.

“Freelance jobs are “feudalism,” says California Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez.

She persuaded California’s legislature to pass a new law reclassifying freelance workers as employees. That means many people who hire them must now give them benefits like overtime, unemployment insurance, etc. Politicians said it would help freelancers a lot.

Of course, much of the media agreed. Vox called it “a victory for workers everywhere”!

Sigh. Young reporters just don’t understand that stifling economic freedom always creates nasty side effects.”

California is an authoritarian State.  Get used to used, change it, give up and watch Seinfeld reruns—or leave the State.  You have few freedoms in California.
