AB 5 will crack down on companies using independent contractors.
Here are the news stories of interest to Teamsters today, January 5, 2017.
Too many workers are being left on the hook by companies that aren't willing to hire them full-time.
The Teamsters were at the forefront of a significant victory for workers last week. And the decision by the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) could provide a voice for millions of additional Americans.
Too many corporations are taking advantage of hardworking Americans who are trying to earn a living to support their families. Instead of bringing them on as full-time workers, these companies go on the cheap by hiring temporary or contract workers who don't have the same job protections or benefits. Meanwhile, the employer avoids paying some taxes and unemployment insurance.
