“Over the past decade, I’ve built my freelance writing business into a full-time profession, leaving my full-time job last March. In doing so, I more than tripled my income and increased my financial stability. That could all change thanks to laws like AB5 and the PRO Act. The PRO Act would destroy my business and my only source of income. I’m also a woman with a chronic illness, so many traditional employment opportunities are impractical or even dangerous for me. In truth, as a freelancer I have more control over my rates, my clients, and my career than I ever did as an employee. I wouldn’t trade this life for anything, but thanks to these laws, I might have to.”
