Bloomberg BNA reporter Madison Alder has written an eye-opening article that suggests the possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) could force many gig economy workers to abandon their freelance lifestyle and secure full-time work. Gig companies everywhere should read the piece and start planning for how this possible legislative action could impact their organizations.
The replacement for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – the American Health Care Act (AHCA) – recently passed the House and is now being considered by the Senate. It has the full support of the president, and barring any significant amendments, President Trump will no doubt sign it into law if it passes the Senate. Many independent workers, including those working in the gig economy, are worried because of a belief that a repeal of the ACA could have a huge impact on the way they work.
