Thank you, Nicholas! Much appreciated!
That is a very good question as far as what it will mean for freelancers who reside outside of California. Obviously, it will most likely not change anything for freelance drivers, though I could see an uptick of drivers and transport companies in neighboring states that might have more lax regulations. But as for visual media, data entry, data analytics, document review, etc, I think that work has traditionally always gone to the lowest bidder anyway, regardless of the freelancer’s geographic location. Though, with corporate responsibility now finally becoming trendy (and Cancel Culture in full swing), I think the more progressive organizations will want to fall in line and start treating their temporary workers better so as to not draw any negative press. Either way, this will certainly be a fascinating real world test of economic theory.
