Not sure how much this vote is going to matter. Trumps cabinet members are as we speak rushing through regulatory changes that would lower standards across a wide range of topics, including when workers can be classified as independent contractors.
With respect to working in the gig economy I think Glenn Quagmire summed it up quite nicely:
“Giggity - Giggity - Goo.”
Looks like the corporations followed the Dodd/Frank template wherein the corporations write the legislation 95% beneficial to them with a 5% sweetener for the 99%.
Noticed how Trump tasked Kathy Kraninger to dismantle the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau CFPB) component of Dodd/Frank while leaving all the corporate friendly provisions intact ?

These were my positions on these measures, I’m not saying that these are necessarily the best choices for everyone, but they are the decisions I made.
