California is regulating my livelihood out of existence (Paid freelance writers will soon only be allowed to write 35 articles/year in CA)

(From The Washington Examiner)

“A new California law that takes effect on Jan. 1 will restrict the number of articles freelancers can write to 35 per outlet annually…

…According to the Hollywood Reporter, Gonzalez (Assemblywoman and the sponsor of the bill, now law) was previously a labor organizer and claims that freelancers threaten full-time writers because they can be used to break newsroom unions, such as the newly-created Los Angeles Times newsroom union.”
