The health and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has been strongly felt among Hispanic households here in Virginia and across the country. Our community has faced disproportionate infection rates, devastating job loss and uncertainty regarding our children’s education. One thing is certain, the ongoing challenges we face highlight the need to strongly protect and promote access to flexible work arrangements.
Increasingly, Latinos in Virginia are earning a living by alternative working arrangements like independent contracting and flexible jobs in industries like ride-sharing, delivery, healthcare, childcare, real estate, and construction.
Eliminating regulatory hurdles to independent contracting will create more opportunities for Latinos to have these flexible jobs and empower them to build their life as they see fit while keeping the economy moving.
This unprecedented time demands unprecedented action to remove barriers that stand in the way of individuals finding fulfilling work.
Please make sure Virginia is a place where everyone can find flexible and fulfilling work that works for them.
