Research Corner: What Do Carriers Think Of AB5?

California’s AB5 has made for the kind of articles media outlets dream about.

As it’s been litigated over the past couple of years, we’ve seen unions jostle with lobbyists, spirited protests slow commerce (see last month’s blockade at the Port of Oakland) and a larger ideological showdown that pits ideals of workers’ rights against the flexible labor that gig economy proponents say is a feature, not a bug.

Amid the rancor, a lot of uncertainty still surrounds AB5: uncertainty about what it means and to whom it applies as well as about how it will even be enforced.

FreightWaves’ senior editorial researcher Joe Antoshak and senior analyst Tony Mulvey highlight below the highlights of a recent FreightWaves survey regarding AB5 on this week’s edition of the Research Corner.
