Gig companies trying to turn tax code. In what he has called the "Worker Flexibility and Choice Act", Rep. Cuellar, D-Tx, has labeled this bill, as so many bills are labeled, in an attempt to make it something it is not. The reality of this bill, is that it is trying to lower wages, even below the minimum wage, to make Gig workers akin to slaves, and take the authority of determining "Status" away from the IRS, who traditionally have made that determination, as it relates to filing a tax return appropriately. I know of this issue, as two people I have relationships with work Gig jobs, driving, one for food delivery, the other giving rides to various locations on the East Coast. Both have admitted t me the amount they earn, and after you take into consideration the wear and tear on a vehicle, it is not even minimum wage. Gig companies trying to turn tax code.
Most of these workers are given direction on what to do, an app to execute the direction, and drive other instructions, that would classify them as an employee, not an independent contractor. But, if you call a bill the "Worker Flexibility and Choice Act", you flip upside down and inside out, the reality of what is going on. Most of these people are working these jobs, because the economy did not provide them any other opportunity for advancement. They do it for survival. So its not really a "Choice". To then call having to work in the evening, when most of these workers are working, when most people would prefer a 9 to 5 job, so they can be home with family when the kids are home from school, to call that "Flexibility" is in fact the reverse of reality. But it serves the large corporations that Congress feeds on for donations and perks at the expense of the American people. Gig companies trying to turn tax code.
