Harley Rouda votes for Assembly Bill 5

February 27, 2020

Harley Rouda voted Friday for the PRO Act, legislation that severely harms freelancers working in the gig economy.  

The legislation uses language eerily similar to California’s Assembly Bill 5, a newly implemented (and extremely unpopular) California law that heavily restricts the amount of freelance work independent contractors can perform.

Why would Rouda vote for a bill he knows is extremely unpopular in California? Because Labor PACs give big money to Harley! 

PS: Can you guess which language goes with the state law vs. the federal legislation?
