California State Senator Brian Jones joined Mark for an in-depth conversation on Assembly Bill 5 that would limit when businesses could classify employees as independent contractors. This includes workers from hairstylists to ride-share drivers. AB 5 was authored by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez. She says the workers should be entitled to things like sick time, paid family leave and workers compensation.... Some ride-share drivers believe AB 5 will limit their ability to earn what they want and when they want.
Also, former FBI Director James Comey was found by an independent watchdog group from the Inspector General's office to have made multiple violations and set dangerous examples for government employees. We get perspective from former United States Attorney General Ed Meese on this and how far it might go.
