We went to every county and state, Republican convention voting for the right-to-work laws. Little did we know that they would ever be threatened. We just thought we were making a principled vote. Today, that is in jeopardy.
Many independent contractors. Do not know what is facing them. Please, do not let this get away from us or take it for granted. Right now is the time to make sure that we encourage any Senator org unit, and our congressmen that we can vote no for this egregious, bill that threatens to reduce freedom to the American contractor and freelancer. Please please take a stand. Thank you.
This has been very helpful to us as a family. I have been able to make the extra income that we needed and I was able to set my own hours. I had no boss. I had no quotas.
There was no one who had control over me – only me. I did not have to report to someone else. I did have lots of support in the group that I work with.
And I’d just like to say, it’s not fair that people would be stopping from working when that is what they want to do.

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 really want to take care of my family, teach my kids, and also bring in an income. Being an independent contractor allows that flexibility. There’s no other job like mine… because I created it.

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.
