On Saturday, the New York Times ran a feature on Freelancers Union and our nationwide expansion. Of course, we're happy to have the coverage, but what really excites us is that the national press is recognizing the importance of independent workers and their issues. We'd love to see freelancers nationwide get the kind of attention from policy makers that NYC Comptroller Bill Thompson recently gave to the City's independent workers. If you read the article and are visiting us for the first time, take a look around the blog, read the About Us section for our history, check out our discounts, and of course join for free!
