Comment from Joe Eisenberg

I am totally in support of maintaining independent contractor status. The opportunity will be lost if Uber and other companies like them have to guarantee a minimum wage and provide benefits. I owned a small (15 emp) mfg co. for several years. While I also offered half paid health care and always paid above minimum wage. However, Times have changed, the dynamics of employment is in flux. Let it happen. A few years from now there will be more clarity regarding the future of employment. We will be in a position of making better decisions. Health care will probably no longerbe completely employer based. Options for individuals will be much greater.
I pay my self emplopyment tax to protect social security. That’s part of the deal for self employment.
