Thoughts on California passing AB5 bill on Gig Economy?

California is it's own thing and it continues to prove how extreme it can be. AB5 bill, geared towards companies like UBER and Lyft is taking a broad swipe approach and causing collateral damage to the copywriting community.

In short, and correct me if I am wrong, this bill is aimed at protecting contractors who are affected by the over competitive markets found in the "GIG" economy, mostly with an eye toward UBER and Lyft. Seems the streaming piles of cash generated by driving people from point A to point B is running dry. It's an extremely low barrier of entry, you have a car, a phone and sticker, you are in business. I have read some people have gone as far as leasing or buying luxury cars "with loans" just so they could charge more per fare. What happens when you begin to get undercut? What happens when consumers, who choose with their money, decide they do not need to pay more just to ride in a brand new escalade and are fine going to the airport in a prius? Isn't this capitalism? First to market takes the biggest risk and reaps the greatest reward? Those who are late must fight to differentiate and survive or find something else to do?

But what about contractors, like copywriters? Copywriters have been in business for a LONG time, independently writing for several publications, seemingly undisturbed by the bloggers, tweeters and massive demand for $5 article writers, at least the good one are not. With AB5, all writers would be cap...

Do you take online surveys to earn some extra?

I joined one online survey site and I have just redeemed my points for some income. I am still waiting for my PayPal to receive the payment and I am excited! Do any of you do the same thing?

Have Post Offices Been Swallowed By The Internet?

We used to post snail mail over the post office. I wonder if these post offices are still available. The internet has swallowed many ventures. I think the post office is one of them.

Do you take a break from your online jobs?

I now that working online is very fun and convenient that is why sometimes we are spending a lot of time from it without even noticing that we are not giving some time for our mind and body to have some rest even in just a couple of hours or in a day as well. I think it is good to give our selves a break from our online works so that we will stay fresh and motivated to work hard since life would be tiring and stressful without a break or rests from them.

Do you have a break from your online jobs? What makes you think about it?

Do you work late at night for online jobs?

I know for sure that some of us are working late at night for our online jobs since sometimes we are having some offline job at day time and the only time that is available is by continue working late at night. I know that some would not be comfortable in this kind of schedule but then for me I feel convenient since it is peaceful and very calm which I can concentrate in working on my online jobs.

Do you really work on your freelancing sites late at night? What are the reasons that made you to set this kind of schedule?

Best earbuds or headphones for working?

Find I work best when listening to music but need better headphones or earbuds...

I am sure if you have used earbuds you notice there is a lot of low end and mid sound ranges that are missing, then there is that inner ear pain from wearing them too long...

Tried over ear and on ear to get better sound, most have been kind of bulky or poor battery life when using bluetooth...

So I am asking you all for any suggestions on new headphones so I can get back to work!

Online or Offline jobs : Which do you prefer?

I can remember vividly when we were still in the university, we had this vision of graduating and getting a good job in reputable company or firm. But on getting into the labor market, things don't seem to go as planned. So, people now pursue online jobs now, although there are still offers for offline jobs. Which one do you prefer? Working online or Offline?

Who will win the Russia 2018 world cup

France have already qualified for the Russia 2018 world cup Final and it's remaining England and Croatia to play their semi final match in order to determine who would win the world cup Final. I'm going with England to win the world cup should they beat Croatia in the semi final.

DeMarcus Cousins on GSW

What are your thoughts on this move? GSW considered as the 2019 champions? I think this would be the greatest line-up in the NBA history.
