My Message: Becoming Fred Flintstone is Not a Goal

Screen Shot 2020-01-12 at 2.13.54 PMNew Jersey’s largest newspaper published this op-ed that I wrote on Jan. 9—the same day that, after two months of intense pushback from freelancers like myself, NJ Senate President Steve Sweeney said he would stop pushing anti-freelancer legislation through the lame-duck session in Trenton.

The legislation is likely to be back, though, in the next legislative session, putting the careers of thriving freelancers like me squarely in the crosshairs. The AFL-CIO is pushing bills like these nationwide, which is why I took the opportunity to speak directly to that organization’s New Jersey leader in this piece.

This op-ed is strongly worded, I know. It needs to be. A lot of thriving careers, including mine, are going to be destroyed if this type of legislation isn’t stopped.
