A Hillary Clinton presidency would destroy the future of innovation and freedom of independent contractors that grow the economy.
CNBC’s Squawk Box hosted Grover Norquist to discuss the sharing economy, trade, and U.S. competitiveness. Hillary Clinton’s political incentive for “cracking down” on the sharing economy is directly related to control her desire to force union membership. But if the independent contractor laws remain intact, Clinton will have less power to stifle economic efficiency.
The election will have enormous influence on the future of independent contractors. Grover notes Hillary’s problem with the sharing economy:
“This next election is ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on the sharing economy, on Uber, and Airbnb because the unions don’t like for you to be your own boss. Then you can’t be forced to pay union dues.”
Grover also says that threats against regulating the sharing economy relate to U.S. growth and development:
“We need many Ubers in many industries to give us more flexibility in the entire economy so we can out-compete the rest of the world.”
These anti-competitive efforts of Hillary Clinton will be a barrier to new businesses and worker freedom.
