  3. This is a pretty good explanation of the new California law. "If California’s freelance writers and photographers are seeking an explanation for why they’re losing assignments, it’s not because AB 5 puts limits on what they can do, but because their own employers are looking for a world where they can avoid providing these basic benefits to their content providers and keep the profits from the labor for themselves." https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2019-12-19/california-freelancers-gig-economy
