    Interesting piece! Thanks for the insight. I work for a government grant-funded non-profit with all 1099 staff and we are all affected by this. Just as bad: all local government projects are paused with the threat that cities will now have to drop their consultants and contractors to hire firms, thus breaking two-year contracts with non-profits that make a lot of positive difference with very little. I’d be curious if you’ve heard from other non-profits or if that discussion has been approached yet (we can’t find much on the non-profit sector but it seems the government just hurt their own projects with AB5).
