The S.E.I.U.& Teamsters had a lot to do with that legislation. Initially The blabber was directed at UBER & LYFT drivers being taken advantage of but the language in the bill was broad sweeping and covered everyone from bread truck drivers,soft drink delivery drivers,independent cab operators,piece workers in the construction trades,handy man/home repair businesses etc. casual laborers,persons working auctions and estate sales ,persons working in sales,physical therapists ,Personal trainers,massage therapists,exotic dancers and yeah "The Working Girls" . TOTALLY NUTS
The idiot democrat state legislator that supposedly authored and championed this crap weasel law is coming under severe fire and keeping a very low profile right now.
But the sad part is the rest of the jackasses in the democrat controlled California State Legislature all drink out of the same punch bowl and passed it without ever reading it and giving careful consideration to all the unintended consequences a law like that has.
They all go charging out to do battle against the windmills every day.
So NOTHING SUBSTANTIAL IS GETTING DONE by these "legislators" who feel that it is their sole life purpose to "Govern Over Us" as if we were their personal flock of sheep.
The are nothing but a bunch of house "Pimp Daddies" and "Madams" shaking us down for all they can get out of us. Here is another law that is unconstitutional ( but a lot of the states use it)The California State Source Tax & "Law Of Reciprocity" which allows the state to tax a retired persons state pension even if they move to another state.Some states do not honor this law.States that do will do the same to their own state retirees that move out of state. Guess which states California retirees with state pensions are flocking to if they can afford make the jump. Some even move to foreign countries that have no such agreements with the USA or any state within because of this law.
A lot of retirees in order to become free people again will take an up front 40% tax hit and cash out . That's the price of freedom to get your divorce from California final.
If you do not the California State Board Of Equalization will pursue you to the gates of hell in order to collect.
If one enters the state to visit family they have to do it on the QT because the state will have probably had bench warrants issued against them for non payment/tax evasion.
If you have any real property holdings in the state they will try to seize those assets in lieu of payment for back taxes the state claims it is owed.
They want to own you til your dying day. "You thought you was free? Who put those funny ideas in your head? No one gets off the plantation that easy! Now get back to work and make us some more money bitches."
We are marked as sources of revenue for the state & the fed. It starts the day you are born. LOL
“Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with.”

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." -- FREDERIC BASTIAT
The following is an excerpt from COCHRANE, The Life and Exploits of a Fighting Captain, by Robert Harvey. It is a quote of record, taken from this true story, and can be found on page 88 of the paperback. Cochrane, having secured a seat in the House, was called a radical by the Admiralty because he saw the corruption, jobbery and indifference of the mediocre naval establishment and its effect on a fighting fleet.
"Cochrane's political philosophy was sea-breeze straightforward:
'It had become unmistakenly manifest that the two great factions into which politicians were divided had no other object than to share in the general plunder, and, as a first step to this, to embarrass the government of the 'ins' by the factious opposition of the 'outs'. Indeed, so obvious had this become, that the appellations of Whig and Tory were laid aside by common consent, and the more descriptive names of 'outs' and 'ins' substituted in their stead. My election had no doubt been secured by the emphatic declaration, that I would belong to neither party, supporting or opposing either as in my judgment might seem conducive to the national good.
The animosity of these respective parties against each other was favorable to such a course. Each accused the other of grasping at offices for the sake of personal dependent advantage, averred that the aim of their opponents was neither the administration of government--which, as has been seen, was left to administer itself in its own way--nor the good of the country, but the possession and distribution of the public money. So virulent had these mutual recriminations become, that it cannot be wondered at if people took the disputants at their word; the more so as the moment either party was in power they threw aside the principles which had gained momentary ascendancy, and devoted their sole attention to their former practices, knowing that, as their possession of office might be short, a tenure so uncertain must be made the most of. Statesmanship amongst such people was out of the question. Neither party could even foresee that the very disgust which their scramble for office was exciting in the public mind must one day overthrow both factions.' "
