Don't be fooled by sweet sounding words -- this has absolutely NOTHING to do with the govt worrying about workers or their rights. It has EVERYTHING to do with wanting automatic taxes to be taken out of their paychecks (which occurs when one is listed as an employee and not as an indpdt contractor). It is the way of all govts that function on debt and persist in going ever DEEPER in debt to maintain their power and control over their people -- they always seek out new ways to siphon off as much of their people's wealth as possible, until they are sucked dry. Ie, they are a giant sucking parasite on WeThePeople, in league with their bankster gangsters at the Fed. Nothing against workers seeking redress of grievances against an employer or someone that refuses to pay, but this has NOTHING to do with that.
