This is crazy how it seems to be hard to shutdown this nonsense. This kind of thing (trying to classify someone as not an employee when they clearly are) has been going on forever. It gets shutdown and then employers try and call it something else. This week it's "gig workers".

Honest question - how do you reconcile "I'm not a contractor" and "I can work however much, or little, as I want 100% at my discretion?"
