In order to understand why California’s new Assembly Bill 5, (AB 5) is lousy you have to decipher who wins and who loses in the gig economy. If the losers are politically connected, it is logical that the losers will try to change the rules.
This is the downside of most government interventions. The goals of the “do-gooders” are overwhelmed by the special interests. Laws should be simple and have as little interference in the personal lives as possible.
The gig economy has provided opportunities for millions of Americans to make money. That’s not the same as having a “job” but that’s the point. Many gig workers have other jobs and many of the ones who don’t are in school or want to work part-time to make a little extra cash. Obviously, some of these people would like to have a different job which they can freely look for while doing gig work without any repercussions from an “employer” looking for loyalty or firm work hours.

I was feeling mellow this morning and listened to a little Chicago which is one of my favorite bands of all time. America from Chicago came on and I couldn’t resist looking up the lyrics and now I want to post them here.
America, America is free

To turn back the tide

It’s time we stand up for our rights
Put Congress in our political sights
Make them pass laws that help us all
The founding fathers echo will be heard in the hall
By the people, for the people, everyone equal

The response to the high wages demanded in low skill position was obvious.
Miso can offer Flippys (a robot for making food) to fast-food restaurant owners for an estimated $2,000 per month on a subscription basis, breaking down to about $3 per hour. (The actual cost will depend on customers’ specific needs). A human doing the same job costs $4,000 to $10,000 or more a month, depending on a restaurant’s hours and the local minimum wage. And robots never call in sick.
Sorry teenager trying to earn a few bucks to go to college, restaurants don’t need to hire you at the high wage that over-eager do-gooders are demanding.
