Comment from Virginia Trucking Association

Many Americans have chosen the independent contractor model because of the opportunity it provides and empowerment to choose the conditions (e.g., hours and routes) that suit their lifestyle. This is especially true in the trucking industry where, despite an abundance of opportunities to be hired as an employee driver, hundreds of thousands of men and women have chosen to work as owner-operators in trucking. The independent contractor model deserves to be protected but also safeguarded from abuse.
