Dear Governor Newsom:

Assembly Bill 5 reclassifies contractors as employees, resulting in higher taxes, loss of workers’ flexibility to set their schedule and lost jobs. 

Please work for the immediate REPEAL of AB 5!

Raises taxes on people who can least afford to pay more

Prior to AB 5, contractors were eligible for small business tax deductions for their work expenses. As employees under AB 5, these tax deductions will no longer be available.

Eliminates workers' flexibility to set their own schedules

As contractors, workers enjoyed the flexibility to set their own schedules, allowing them to work while going to school or caring for a loved one. Under AB 5, workers lose this flexibility.

Increases costs for practically everything

AB 5 raises costs for numerous services, including healthcare. Drivers, home healthcare workers, tax preparers, hair stylists, and photographers are several among many impacted professions.
