Regulation, taxation, all i the name of equality, right? Wrong! Moonbattery has this
California’s moonbat rulers have gone beyond discouraging work through overtaxation to straight out banning it. Assembly Bill 5 represents senseless tyranny at a level of lunacy rarely seen outside of communist dictatorships.
Last month AB 5, designed to criminalize the vibrant gig economy, was passed and signed. It allows independent contractors to do their job only if it is outside the usual work done by the company that pays them. Basically, that makes it illegal to work as a freelancer in the People’s Republic of California.
They simply cannot stand liberty and personal choice can they?
Under that requirement, janitors could work as independent contractors only when they have contracts with companies not in the business of cleaning.
Or a rideshare driver could work under a contract with Uber or Lyft only if those companies were primarily in the business of, say, selling vacuum cleaners.
This is not freedom, it is statism. ere is the fundamental question
By what authority do the leftists running California deprive people of their fundamental right to earn a living?
Indeed! Governor Gavin Newsom, of course is all for taking choice from workers
In a signing statement, Gov. Gavin Newsom said the next step “is creating pathways for more workers to form a union, collectively bargain to earn more, and have a stronger voice at work.”
It is “in this spirit,” he said, that he would persuade political, labor, and business leaders to support an effort in which “workers excluded from the National Labor Relations Act” would have “the right to organize and collectively bargain.”
When Skelton said that maybe the aim of AB5 was “to rope in more dues-paying union members,” he might have been more correct than he realized.
Again, leftism is the most corrosive force on earth
