Comment from National Retail Federation National Council of Chain Restaurants

In today’s constantly evolving economy, many workers prefer to choose independent work arrangements that offer greater control over work hours and assignments and increased opportunity for profit. For many workers, these characteristics are integral elements of their full time business model. For others, this flexibility provides important supplementary income streams. At the same time, an increasing number of businesses rely on the expertise and initiative of independent contractors to fulfill needs. The prompt adoption of such a rule will contribute to the preservation and growth of FLSA-covered employment opportunities while also spurring innovation and entrepreneurship through the gig economy and among others who are in business for themselves.
