Truckers that become employees, sure you'll get vacations, and unemployment and retirement benefits (those of you working for good firms), but you will also need to figure out if you own your own truck how your firm will reimburse you for repairs, tows and such since you currently can not deduct expenses as an employee given the new tax code. Lots of things have changed. Buyer beware.
Note that with this law, 35 "gig's are exempted from this. But if you are driving daily this could end in a month (or if you are a blogger, writer, etc.) ALSO EXEMPTED from this are the license medical professionals.
If you are operating within a corporation or LLC you might be exempt. However, employers are worried and are even asking individuals operating within a corporation or LLC to go W2.
We have a lot of time to go before we know how this new law will ultimately play out--particularly within the confines of the new tax code.
