    What do you make of Biden's latest?

    The new act that reclassified side hustlers such as Doordash as employees? I've read talking heads online predicting economic gloom up to the death knell for the US economy "similar to the Yankess advancing on Atlanta" as one put it.

    Though I am very adept at finding legal ways around the United States of America, I do not claim to be any kind of economic expert. What's your take on Biden's latest? Let's just hope Atlanta is spared this time around, no? (Feeble attempt at humor). Rob

    Being an independent contractor I'd like to know more. In what way are they making it difficult to classify us? I read the article but there are no specifics.

    It's called the Fair Labor Standards Act and I have more articles I've found but I can't them from the clipboard to this site as I did the two above. But I'm thinking by googling Fair Labor Standards Act you'll get a better snapshot of this latest drama. Rob

    California passed a ballot initiative a few years ago that kind of created a hybrid gig worker/employee. Basically I believe they are still considered gig workers who can set their own schedules etc but the "employer" has to do things like pay minimum wage for hours worked, provide mileage stipends, health insurance stipends, workers comp, etc. It seems to be working here and the sky hasn't fallen.
