Supporters of AB5 Rally in San Diego

first_img Updated: 9:29 AM SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez, D-San Diego, will join with local workers Thursday to call for the passage of a bill she authored that would limit when businesses and companies could classify employees as independent contractors.Assembly Bill 5 would codify worker protections established in last year’s state Supreme Court decision in the case of Dynamex Operations West Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles. If passed, the bill would reclassify thousands of California workers like Uber drivers and exotic dancers as employees rather than independent contractors.There are some oppositions from some rideshare drivers who fear the passage of the bill would take away their ability to work when they want to.Opponents said the bill doesn’t accurately reflect today’s realities. They are concerned it would move the state backward by eliminating their choice to work independently.They also argue that many people drive for Uber and Lyft to earn extra money to supplement their day job. If the drivers become full-time employees, they will no longer be able to continue driving part-time. This will leave a considerable gap in the transportation that millions of consumers rely on every day.The two giant ride-sharing companies, Uber and Lyft, are by far the most vocal opponents of the bill.The Assembly passed AB 5 in May and it currently sits in the state Senate as companies attempt to carve out exemptions for specific industries like ride-booking and food delivery services. The bill has also drawn national attention due to support from Democratic presidential candidates and Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, and Kamala Harris, D-California.Janitorial workers and representatives of Rideshare Drivers United in Southern California, the United Taxi Workers Alliance, the Employee Rights Center and the Sierra Club are expected to join Gonzalez at the rally and news conference to call for AB 5’s passage. The rally is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. at Waterfront Park.

Marti Buscaglia

first_imgThe launch of Duluth~Superior Magazine, a regional Minnesota niche, may never have happened if it weren’t for its founder’s rocky start.When former Duluth News Tribune publisher Marti Buscaglia decided to leave the newspaper to take a position at the Orange County Register in California, she suffered a devastating career blow when an anonymous reader tipped off her new employer to ask for a copy of Buscaglia’s college diploma.Buscaglia, who never finished her degree, says she made the “rookie” mistake of writing it on her resume. “The CEO asked me, ‘Well, do you want to come on board anyway and ride out the storm?’ and I told him that I didn’t think it was fair to his readers—they needed a publisher they could trust.” Buscaglia picked up the pieces, finished her college degree in Minnesota (graduating summa cum laude), and took the summer of 2007 to write the business plan for her dream of producing a niche city and lifestyle publication for the area.“I had a vision and I understand demographics. We really set out to give people a sense of pride of living in this region,” she says of the underserved market.After launching in the winter of 2008, Buscaglia’s brainchild has a 10,000 circulation for a market area of less than 250,000 people. While other area magazines tout PDFs to display content online, Buscaglia has created a Web presence with online-exclusive content, unique media partnerships and a comprehensive arts and events calendar. The Web site draws 165,000 page views from 10,000 visitors monthly.“We didn’t have a lot of ads, but enough to make it worthwhile, with five full-page advertisers with yearlong contracts, and a few smaller ones,” says Buscaglia. The magazine, now 68 pages, is down from its launch of 96 pages. Buscaglia admits anticipating a page reduction. “Readers are just as happy. Many say it’s better.”VITAL STATS: After only a year, Duluth~Superior Magazine has 10,000 circulation for a market area of less than 250,000 people.last_img read more

Python snake catcher bags 18foot monster danger noodle

first_img 0 Post a comment Animals behaving badly amuse the internet Enlarge ImageSnakes alive, this python is a big ‘un. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission “Problem pythons” sounds like a great band name, but it’s a real issue for some areas of Florida. Burmese pythons are breeding and spreading across wildlife areas, including the fragile Everglades. The state now pays trappers to round up the large snakes, and one particular hunter just caught a doozy. Trapper John Hammond grabbed an 18-foot-long (5.5-meter) python this past weekend. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) shared a startling photo of his trophy on Facebook earlier this week. “During cooler months, people are more likely to see pythons during the day,” the commission wrote. Hammond, officially known as a Python Removal Contractor, snagged the snake in the Everglades Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area near Miami. Burmese pythons can reach 20 feet (6 meters) in size. More nope-ropes The story didn’t end happily for the snake. FWC says pythons caught for the program are humanely euthanized. Hammond told Fox 35 he would use the snake’s hide after skinning it. The news station also reports the snake just set a new record for largest python caught as part of Florida’s removal program. The 150-pounder beat out a 17-foot, 120-pound snake snagged in November. It’s sad to see what happens to these majestic animals, but Florida is trying to control the invasive species, which is taking a serious toll on native wildlife.  The state even offers Python Patrol, a training program for private citizens that teaches them how to identify, capture and humanely kill the predators. Hundreds of the snakes have been removed since Florida started its python-control efforts.
