Truck driver Dee Sova on moving her business out of California: It was financially ‘worth it’

Truck driver Dee Sova says she was forced out of California in order to keep her business running.
I'M A SUCCESSFUL FEMALE MINORITY TRUCK DRIVER. CALIFORNIA'S AB5 FORCED ME TO LEAVE THE STATE I LOVE
California's law AB5, enacted in 2020, effectively makes it difficult to be an independent truck driver in the state.Lawmakers' intentions, Sova argues, were to push truckers to "revert back" and become a company driver, or, to "leave the state."
"At that time, [lawmakers] were saying that anyone who was an independent contractor had to revert back to becoming a company driver, or had to leave the state. It was clear that my decision was I wanted to remain as an independent contractor, and I made the choice to leave," Sova explained on "Varney & Co."
