Freelancer: we need to know…

While independent workers—self-employed, freelance, part-time, and temporary—comprise 30% of the U.S. workforce, there is limited information about these workers. To help fill that knowledge gap, please complete the Freelancers Union Annual Independent Worker Survey. Survey results inform the public (see previous survey coverage in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today) and policymakers about issues that affect workers like you. Based on data from previous surveys, policymakers have made concrete changes to help support independent workers—from reforming the Unincorporated Business Tax to introducing legislation (S8084/A11520) to help independent contractors collect what they’re owed from nonpaying clients. Needless to say, the more respondents there are, the better the data is, and the greater the chance of helping you as an independent worker. So please take a few minutes to complete the survey here.

PS. I will be doing a webinar for Freelancers Union on March 16th at 5pm PST – Save the date, details to come.
