Advocacy

Our association is dedicated to advancing the freedom of America’s Independent Workers by giving them an equal voice in public policy, an equal choice to pursue their workstyle without fear, and equal access to benefits to protect themselves, their businesses, and their families.

 
By every measure, Independent Workers should be able to carry serious political clout in the U.S.
3/4 Independent Workers choose to work this way.
Yet, Independent Workers lack a unified political voice that advocates on their behalf.

The Challenges and Barriers

Unfair and unequal tax treatment
Lack of access to benefits structures.
No dedicated Federal focus of Independent Workers

Over 50 million Americans engage in Independent Work.
