Two days ago, the United States Supreme Court refused to hear the challenge of California Assembly Bill 5 (AB-5) which will outlaw 70,000+ Independent Owner-Operator Truckers from operating in California. What does this mean to you?
AB-5 will be enforced by law enforcement, and Independent Truckers will be refused use of all California roads and highways as of of Saturday, July 9th, 2022. Any of your online orders being carried by an Independent Trucker will be denied entry to the State of California and delayed in transit until alternate shipping on California roadways can be arranged. Any of your local stores awaiting orders that are carried by Independent Truckers will be delayed. During a nationwide truck driver shortage, fuel shortage, and supply-chain failure, the Democrat led California Legislature has removed a huge share of trucking services within the State of California. This ultimately will lead to a more perfect Socialist Democrat Utopia.
The enforcement of AB-5 will not only impact California Citizens, but markets nationwide that depend on goods shipped and transported by truck from Southern California’s busiest ports in Long Beach and Los Angeles.
My hope is that those reading this brief article have stocked-up on provisions during these past months and will be ready for profound delays of future deliveries. Good luck.
