Independent contractors are not entitled to many of the legal protections afforded to employees, such as minimum wage and overtime pay. Employees can cost companies up to 40% more than contractors, according to several studies.

Mitt Romney clears way for Trump to push through speedy Supreme Court nomination
Donald Trump is likely to have the votes in the US Senate to confirm a Supreme Court nominee before the election after Mitt Romney became the latest Republican moderate to back a speedy process. Mr Romney, the Utah senator who was the Republican presidential nominee for the 2012 election, had been seen as a possible rebel given he is one of the few senators willing to publicly speak out against the US president. However on Tuesday Mr Romney disappointed liberals by making explicit his willingness to vote on the person Mr Trump picks to fill the Supreme Court seat open after the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg last week. "The Constitution gives the president the power to nominate and the Senate the authority to provide advice and consent on Supreme Court nominees," Mr Romney said in a statement announcing his position. "Accordingly, I intend to follow the Constitution and precedent in considering the president's nominee. If the nominee reaches the Senate floor, I intend to vote based upon their qualifications."

AOC rallies liberals over supreme court battle: ‘This is not the time to give up'
New York congresswoman emerges as one of the high-profile faces of the Democratic response on ways to thwart Republicans' plansNew York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has emerged as one of the high-profile faces of the Democratic response to Republicans' plan to quickly seat a new, conservative supreme court justice.Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most prominent champions of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party, was quick to offer a rallying cry to supporters discouraged by the late-Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death last week."This moment is not the time for despair, it is not the time for cynicism. It is not the time to give up. It is not the time for us to say ‘it's too late' or ‘it's too far gone' or ‘I don't know what to do,' we're going to talk about it right now," The New York congresswoman said in an 40-minute Instagram video posted on Saturday."Because it's that important. Because it is not hyperbole. The actual balance of our democracy rests in the actions that we choose to make - that I choose to make, that you choose to make, that every single individual - chooses to make between now and election day."Ocasio-Cortez has also made appearances alongside New York senator Chuck Schumer, the top ranking Democrat in the Senate. They made a joint appearance Sunday night in Brooklyn to urge supporters to mobilize to fight against Republicans' nominee to replace Ginsburg. That has suggested a strong sense of unity between Ocasio-Cortez and one of the most powerful

‘The Croods: A New Age' Trailer: Meet the Bettermans, Featuring Peter Dinklage and Leslie Mann (Video)
The trailer for "The Croods: A New Age" is out, and it turns out the Croods aren't the only family on earth.There's another, more evolved family living in a utopia of irrigated fields of produce and a fancy treehouse named the Bettermans. Leslie Mann and Peter Dinklage play Phil and Hope Betterman, and Eep Crood (Emma Stone) couldn't be happier to meet their daughter, Dawn (Kelly Marie Tran) her first-ever friend that's a girl her own age. But Grug Crood (Nicholas Cage) isn't so sure all this fancy new stuff, like the TV-like bird-watching that's got all of Guy's (Ryan Reynolds) attention, is a good idea.Watch the trailer above.Also Read: Emmys' Historic Diversity: Majority of this Year's Acting Winners Are Black"The Croods need a new place to live.
