Deadbeat Client Bill Introduced in NY

The New York State Senate just introduced S8084, a bill that would at long last grant freelancers the same protections that traditional employees currently enjoy. This remarkable piece of legislation: * Grants freelancers the same wage protection as traditional employees. * Requires the Department of Labor to pursue freelancers' unpaid wages. * Holds deadbeat executives personally liable for up to $20,000 and jail time. This happened thanks to hundreds of members organizing, making phone calls, spreading the word, and donating to the campaign. Ask your senator today to support S8084! Here's looking forward to the day when deadbeat clients are no longer the specter looming behind every freelancer's career.
