Leveling the field

reimer:

Mayor Bloomberg ♥ Freelancers, a.k.a. “middle-class entrepreneurs”. http://bit.ly/MrM0H

“Freelancers, who are often middle-class entrepreneurs, have never had much political clout, and so they face some serious disadvantages when it comes to taxes and benefits,” he said at a luncheon in midtown. “I think it’s time to start leveling the playing field for freelancers.”

I’m not a big Bloomberg fan in general, and this is obviously a political move with re-election coming up, but this is still a great step in getting public recognition for the unique challenges and needs of freelancers in NY.
