Good NY Times Op-Ed about Misclassified Independent Contractors

As a follow up to my recent post about S. 1687, Payroll Fraud Protection Act of 2013, I saw this good op-ed in the New York Times. The author, a historian, makes a good case for passing the bill right now. The author also makes an interesting suggestion for another change to federal law that could help protect America’s workers. She suggests that the right to bargain collectively should be guaranteed by adding it to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This would mean that employees who take action to come together and bargain collectively with their employer would be protected from discrimination or retaliation because of their actions on behalf of themselves and their fellow workers.
