Opinion: California’s New Labor Law is Killing Business – NJ is About to do the Same

November 22, 2019

As a former California resident with many friends still there, I watched with horror as Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) was passed. The bill, which takes effect January 1, 2020, reclassifies many independent contractors as employees.

There are all kinds of arguments on both sides of the debate, and many works of literature probe the question. Was Charles Manson born bad, or did ...
