Freelancers Union is a nonprofit organization that represents the needs of America’s independent workforce though advocacy, information, and service.
Independent workers make up 30% of the nation’s workforce. We are freelancers, consultants, independent contractors, temps, part-timers, contingent employees, and the self-employed.
Despite our contribution to America’s economy, we’re often left out of the social safety net. Most freelancers can’t access affordable insurance, are taxed more than traditional employees, and have limited access to protections such as unemployment insurance, retirement plans, and unpaid wage claims.
That’s why Freelancers Union is writing new rules for the new workforce.
