ICYMI – McIntosh Hits Biden’s Proposed Job-Killing Gig Worker Rule On Fox Business & In Washington Times


Washington, D.C. — In case you missed it, Club for Growth President David McIntosh joined Fox Business’ Varney & CO on Monday to discuss Biden’s proposed Department of Labor (DOL) job-killing gig worker rule. McIntosh also authored an OpEd in The Washington Times criticizing the proposed rule. Last week, Club for Growth Foundation submitted comments to DOL opposing the proposed rule.


“It’s like an extra hit in the gig economy, and the labor department has proposed this new rule that will dramatically cut back job opportunities for people that want to work part time.” – David McIntosh

“When you count inflation that’s hitting families, prediction we’ll go into a recession by 98% of CEO’s, and now this Biden labor department gig rule. That’s a triple threat that’s aimed squarely at the American family. “ – David McIntosh

“Sadly, they’re putting more penalties on workers, more penalties on employers, adding more spending that puts more pressure on inflation… all of their policies compound to make it worse not better.” – David McIntosh


“This holiday season, while Americans face record inflation and the likely prospect of a recession, President Biden’s Department of Labor has proposed a job-killing rule that would kill the very jobs that many Americans use to get some extra cash and put some presents under the tree. All of this comes as 98% of CEOs and many others are predicting a recession in 2023. This proposed rule would be a large step backward for our economy, eliminate millions of jobs, and be a massive giveaway for plaintiffs’ attorneys. At a time when the U.S. economy is in dire straits, with record-high inflation, the last things that Americans need are decreased employment opportunities and frivolous lawsuits resulting in higher prices.” – David McIntosh

“Numerous surveys show that the vast majority of independent workers prefer to remain independent contractors. The flexibility and opportunities for entrepreneurship this provides for women and minorities is especially valuable.” – David McIntosh

“The department’s current rule is a step in the right direction, providing a legally sound, yet clear and modern, employment test for our modern economy. In stark contrast to the current rule, the proposed rule would kill jobs bring nothing but confusion and litigation as we stand on the doorstep of a crippling recession.” – David McIntosh
