Weil is hostile to independent contractors and freelancers

If Senator Joe Manchin votes to confirm radical academic David Weil as Wage and Hour Administrator, it would be a disaster for West Virginia workers, families, and small businesses. If confirmed, Weil would use his power to implement the anti-worker PRO Act by executive fiat. 

Weil would impose a California-style test to force independent contractors to reclassify as W-2 employees, a death blow to freelancers across West Virginia. This policy has destroyed the livelihood of independent contractors throughout California. See testimonials here.

Weil wants to end Right to Work laws, forcing every West Virginian to choose between paying a union boss or putting food on the table.

Weil has also attacked franchising, a business model that supports over 44,000 jobs and $1.3 billion in payroll in West Virginia. 

Senator Manchin: vote NO on David Weil.
