California and the nation do deserve better. The misguided policies from our Democratic Party politicians are the reason why the Pacific Ocean has a sea of cargo ships waiting to dock at our ports. We need to repeal AB 5 which makes independent contractors who traditionally helped deliver cargo from the ports redundant. Legislators such as Assemblyman Freddie Rodriguez (D-Pomona) and Senator Connie Leyva (D-Chino) voted for this.
Opening the ports 24/7 is not going to solve the issue, we need truckers to help deliver the products. If we do not have the truckers, the ports will still be clogged. Our ports and the unionized longshore people will suffer when companies move the freight to the east coast. We need AB 5 repealed.
If we want to help working families and stop the inflation crisis of 2021, we need action in 2022. Call your Democratic Party legislators today.
