Today, an estimated 59 million Americans flex their independence by earning some or all their income from independent work, which has empowered them to build a future for themselves and their families.
And it’s enabled millions of independent contractors to earn a living amongst the economic fallout of COVID-19.
Yet, some are calling on Washington to outlaw this way of life. For most independent workers, this would mean taking away their ability to earn a living at all.
The good news is, you can help.
We are building a community of people from across the country to stand up to laws that would harm independent workers.
Sign up today to protect flexible work and unite behind independent contractors, entrepreneurs, and small businesses!
Harmful legislation, from Washington like the PRO Act, would jeopardize the ability to earn a living from freelance work.
These laws wouldn’t only affect gig workers like Uber and Lyft drivers or Doordashers and Grubhubers.
Everyone who does independent work would be negatively affected and unable to work with freedom and flexibility.

Similar legislation in California (AB5) has already cost workers in more than 135 occupations their jobs, and federal policies would devastate workers and wreck our economy – especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
But, with your help, we can defend independent work as a viable way of life for millions of people.
The first step is sharing your story and making your voice heard.

My dance company is in danger of shutting down, because of a bill that congress is considering called the PRO Act. I’m creating jobs all year round for dancers, for choreographers, for teachers, for non-profit administrators, and for technical production assistants. With the PRO Act, all of those jobs absolutely, absolutely go away.

If the PRO Act were to pass, it would put me in a really tight spot. It would not be great for my business. I feel like what the PRO Act is going to do is move the point of entry for financial independence.

I make more now than what I did teaching. If the PRO Act came, I would lose that freedom and all of the flexibility. It would really change what our family looks like.

I’ve been able to expand my knowledge as an attorney because I’ve been able to take on projects with a variety of small business owners, as well as major corporations who need me… I have been really fortunate to have a variety of work and variety of experiences both abroad and at home that I wouldn’t have without this flexibility.

I’ve worked in multiple industries in the last 30 years as an independent contractor, including ride share, direct sales, and communications. I love the status as an independent contractor because I get to set my own hours and I get to be my own boss.
