Truckers part of California rally protesting recent court ruling on independent contractors

In response to a recent ruling by the California Supreme Court, a coalition of independent workers in the state, including owner-operator truckers, plan to rally at the state’s Capitol building on Wednesday to try to persuade legislators to intervene and overrule the court. The I’m Independent Coalition, formed in response to an April-issued decision by the state’s high court, says the ruling undercuts the livelihood of independent contractors in all industries in the state. The rally will be held at the state capitol in Sacramento at 10 a.m. Pacific.
