Repeal AB5 Now
You, your family, your neighbors, and your community will feel the impact if we don’t move to protect opportunities for Independent Contractors.
What type of Independent Contractors are negatively impacted by AB5 in California?
What’s the problem with the “B” section of California AB5’s “ABC Test”? In this video, Independent Contractors from multiple industries talk about the limitations to contract with businesses and even other contractors in the same line of work or industry, due to the language and requirements in part B of the new law. Part B of the “ABC Test” is a major block to otherwise legitimate contract relationships.
Join us to show the California Assembly and Senate that industry-targeted carve outs are NOT enough!
This video & website are brought to you by a bipartisan volunteer group of Independent Contractors and Business Owners impacted by AB5. We are NOT associated with Uber, Lyft, or any other large company. We are NOT receiving nor accepting ANY funding.

AB5 impacts Event Production, Entertainment, Music Industry
If I could tell my legislators anything, it would be this: if you will not repeal this bill, you NEED to make working professionals and engineers in the entertainment industry EXEMPT. We already struggle to find work and stay busy. We do that on our own. AB5 does not help us in any way. Minimum wage protection does not benefit professionals who make $400-1000/day and those rates have been cut in half since AB5. We have been feeling the impact of AB5 in no positive way.
AB5 impacts Performing Arts
Essentially, this bill moves me into a position oriented back to working more individually versus collaboratively, which really is not good for small business. I have been able to maneuver a tight ship to stay in the arts sector and these major expenses may tip the scale. I am currently unsure of the future of the sustainability of the business.
