AB5 progresses to Senate & on to the Governor.
UPDATE! BOOTH RENTAL FOR ALL CA LICENSEES!
Today's (proposed) law as amended now INCLUDES licensed manicurists (and estheticians of course!) because we voiced our opinions and reasoned arguments.
Jaime Schrabeck and Wendy Jacobs Cochran deserve extra credit for making this legislation their first priority, investing considerable resources to ensure that licensed beauty pros in California receive EQUAL and FAIR treatment under the law.
Thanks to all who asked questions, and especially to those who shared the news and made the effort to contact their state legislators.
You can keep sharing and contact those same legislators to express your opinion on this version.
(WE STRONGLY support.)
The process will go quickly from here as the California legislature (Senate) has until September 13 to pass the bill. After the bill is signed by Governor Newsom (as expected) and goes into effect January 1, 2020, we need to prove that we're worthy of the exemption!
