Misclassification of 1099 Workers

With the cold upon us here in New Jersey, I trust you are staying warm.

The election made for a busy October that resulted in a House of Representatives that will look more favorably on labor issues, which we are very happy about. Thus, we did not have our October meeting. But we’re back at it this month.

Our next meeting is next Monday, November 26th at 7 pm at 7 Silvester Court East Brunswick, NJ 08816.

We are beginning to explore addressing employee misclassification whereby workers are called “Independent Contractors” or 1099 workers but treated as regular employees and not given the freedom of an Independent Contractor nor the benefits associated with being a traditional employee. This is a widespread problem in the United States.

We want to explore avenues to organize white-collar independent contractors and initiate legal action on their behalf.

We will also be discussing our efforts at fundraising.

We are also beginning to fundraise to buy campaign materials. Please donate here!

Speaking before the NAACP

Hi,

Last night I spoke at the meeting of the Metuchen-Edison NAACP on behalf of AWA on the need for our approach to address the needs of struggling temp and precarious workers in an era of great economic inequality to achieve economic justice for all.

Our First Public meeting!

Greetings!

I want to thank everyone who attended our first public meeting last night! We had a great conversation among union members, white-collar professionals, part-time workers, and small businessmen.

We resolved to assist part-time and temporary workers in navigating the economy, as they are one of the groups struggling the most in this age of great economic inequality.

We need volunteers to help get us up and running. Your time and/or assistance you can offer is greatly appreciated. Please respond directly to this email if you wish to get involved!
