The Biden Administration has made its contempt for the so-called “gig” economy clear. The Administration has proposed multiple rules which would force those workers into “employee” status even though being an Uber driver (for example) simply doesn’t fit nicely into that type of employment status.
The Rio Grande Foundation provided public comment in opposition to the following two Biden Administration rules which would force workers into these unnecessary and absurd boxes. You can click on our comments below:
1. National Labor Relations Board RIN 3142-AA21, “Standard for Determining Joint-Employer Status.” Comments Due December 7, 2022.
2. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division, RIN 1235-AAA3, “Employee or Independent Contractor Classification Under the Fair Labor Standards Act,”
Comments Due December 14, 2022.
Millions of workers nationwide enjoy the freedom of the “gig” economy while also providing useful services to even larger numbers of Americans. The Biden Administration’s attacks would be harmful to workers and American consumers alike.
