This is squarely aimed at the gig economy. It's not a secondary casualty.

California doesn't think there should be "marketplace" companies that facilitate short term work by contractors rather than hiring employees to perform tasks. I think there will be a lot of unintended consequences of this bill and I am worried about it too, but that's clearly an intended consequence.
