California Representative Kevin Kiley, sits down with Bridget to discuss the consequences of the disastrous California AB5 bill going national, and what we can do about it. They cover the realities of AB5 and how it decimated independent contractors in California, how it effects small business owners, Biden's failure to get a national version passed through Congress and the work around he's found to do it anyway, how it infringes on your rights to work for you who want to and how you want to, why it has a disproporitionate effect on women and vulnerable populations exactly the people it claims to protect, the real reason behind this law, and why needing the government’s permission to work obviates the idea of a right to earn a living. They also talk about the steps lawmakers are taking to prevent a national version from taking effect, what individuals can do, and why this issue isn't getting the attention it deserves.

She doesn’t conduct interviews—she has conversations. Conversations with real people about the real struggle and will remind you that we can laugh in pain and cry in joy but there’s no greater mistake than hiding from it all.
