Independent contractor rule could disrupt operations

The new legislation in California and New Jersey could seriously disrupt operations for the drayage industry.

Several Businesses depend on the independent contractor model.

Opponents of the legislation claim that lawmakers did not understand that people like to work independently.

Moreover, many drivers want to have the flexibility and make their own work schedule.
