California’s Attorney General, Xavier Becerra, is doubling down on the state’s application of AB5 to motor carriers. The trucking industry has been down this road before when the Port of Los Angeles tried to restrict access to their marine terminals to employee drivers only. The industry sued and took it all the way to the US Supreme Court…and won!
There is room for both independent contractors and employee drivers in the trucking industry. The right to work should not be restricted to one class of driver. That is just un-American.
