The Economic Policy Institute published a new analysis quantifying the impact on workers in 11 occupations when they are misclassified as independent contractors. Of particular importance for SWACCA, the analysis found that construction workers lost between $10,177 to $16,729 when they are misclassified—the second most of any occupation, listed behind trucking ($11,076 to $18,053).
