It has never been clearer that I currently do not have a Congressman who understands me. Congressman Malinowski moved here after 25 years in Washington as a next step in his career as a politician with no real tie to Somerset County. If he knew anything about this region, he would understand the importance of the gig economy and what it means to our families.
Congressman Malinowski’s vote for HR-2474 jeopardizes my ability to support my family. Working as an independent contractor is a choice I have made for my career. It gives me flexibility and choice while still allowing me to earn what I need to get by.
It has been well documented that this legislation would prevent legitimate independent contractor relationships and add more regulation and complication for small businesses to hire people like me.
