I just had a fantastic writing opportunity force me to be an LLC to work for them for no other reason than I live in Los Angeles, California. If that were not an $870 slap in the face before I even worked for them, that would have likely been feasible. But, it is not; thus, an opportunity that would have opened many writing opportunities, for which I qualified and accepted their offer, and accrued the income required to make my taxes, eat more than twice a day, and afford health insurance have been taken from me by this law. I am fantastically happy that Uber and Lyft got their benefits. Now, I ask, where are my benefits? Where is my ability to remain self-employed? Where are my rights?
