MORE SOCIAL MEDIA FROM THIS WEEK
WHAT YOU CAN DO – Send a letter, email your membership, author an oped and more!
Last month, amendments were made to Assembly Bill 5 (Gonzalez) to exempt four industries from Dynamex. This is a step in the right direction, but more must be done in order to protect those who wish to remain independent contractors in other industries. You make a difference!
Please send a letter to legislators to make sure they know how important this issue is – please see attached sample letter. You can also email your legislator directly here.
Attached is a sample newsletter to share this information with your organization. If you are willing to speak with the media or author an oped, please contact us.
