Diverse Crowd Rallies to Attempt to Overturn AB5

“We are not stupid,” said Peter Kalivas, artistic director at the PKG Project, a San Diego-based, world-class dance theater group. “We do not need to be saved from ourselves. We can negotiate our own contracts. AB5 is insulting.”

AB5 changed labor law in California by setting more-restrictive guidelines on businesses that hire independent contractors. In many cases, it’s left businesses with the choice of making the contractors full-time employees, severely curtailing the number of times they use them, or not using them at all. Everyone in attendance seemed to fall into one of the two latter groups.

Thank you Mike Wolcott and The Chico Enterprise-Record for covering this turn of events!
