A Proposal for Congress: Let People Be Their Own Boss

A Proposal for Congress: Let People Be Their Own Boss

American workers are ditching traditional 9-to-5 jobs for more flexible hours, schedules, and positions. The pandemic has only accelerated this shift, especially among women. People are choosing to work as independent contractors either part-time or full-time. However, independent contracting is at risk from Congress and the Biden administration. Mike Hruby, President of New Jobs for Massachusetts, Inc., has a proposal to protect independent contracting by creating a federally-recognized classification for them. He joins us on this pop-up episode of She Thinks to explain his proposed bill, the Be My Own Boss Act.
