WATCH: Protecting Trucking's Independent Contractors

A new rule from the U.S. Department of Labor undermines the livelihood of 350,000 truckers across the U.S. who choose to operate as independent contractors. In this episode, we explore the rule's impact on small trucking business owners and how ATA is fighting back in the courts and through the legislative process.
“I can think of nothing more un-American than for the government to extinguish the freedom of individuals to choose work arrangements that suit their needs and fulfill their ambitions."- ATA President and CEO Chris Spear
