If you aren’t aware, this year California enacted a body of freelance regulations known as AB 5. The effects have been disastrous for freelancers in that state.

“AB5 was such a train wreck that much of the bill was amended in spring to offer exemptions to writers and other industries, but for many, the damage was already done,” reported Yahoo Finance.

Joe Biden not only expresses support for AB 5, but he’s outlined a plan for a national effort modeled after it.

And he wants to take his plan further than California’s, leading some freelancers to fear a Biden presidency will wreak havoc on the freelancing industry across the country.
