Congress is fast on its way to passing severe restrictions on independent workers in America. That would likely lead to the loss of contracts, employment income, and opportunities. Millions of people are freelancers or work for themselves as independent contractors. Just who would be affected and why do they choose this form of work? New research answers these questions and provides new insight into why women especially choose independent contracting.Liya Palagashvili, a Senior Research Fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, joins She Thinks to share her new research findings. Her primary research interests include entrepreneurship, regulation, and the gig economy.

This week we have a special holiday episode with a very special guest--Patrick Turnbull. Patrick is a retired landscape contractor from Sunland, CA, and has worked independently as Santa Claus for the past 20 years. He’s joining us to talk about how a California law known as AB5 is making it very difficult for him to cheer up kids this holiday season. AB5 has forced millions of independent contractors like Patrick--who do not have or want traditional 9-5 jobs—out of work by forcing them to make an all-or-nothing choice about employment. This is why Santa may just give CA a lump of coal this year.She Thinks is a podcast for women (and men) who are sick of the spin in today’s news cycle and are seeking the truth.

Michele Steeb co-author of the new book Answers behind the Red Door: Battling the Homeless Epidemic joins the podcast to detail the underlying problems in our nation’s rising homeless population. She’ll explain why many of our current policies have made the problem worse and why the key to helping those struggling the most involves much more than providing a roof over their head. Michele Steeb is a senior fellow with the Texas Public Policy Foundation and oversees the Foundation’s initiative to transform the United States’ and Texas’ homelessness policy. She has spent her career in causes for the public good beginning with leadership roles in both federal and state senate campaigns.
