Patrice Onwuka joins the podcast to discuss California’s Assembly Bill 5, or what is better known as AB5. We’ve discussed this gig law on past episodes of She Thinks, but we wanted to give you an update as there’s mounting pressure from independent contractors to overturn it. Patrice Onwuka gives us an update since the law’s implementation in January and previews what this law could mean for your state.
