Capitol Weekly Podcast: ‘Kabatalks’ and AB 5

Brian and John Kabateck

Another Kabatalks  episode of Capitol Weekly’s pod, wherein two brothers working opposite sides of the political spectrum discuss issues of the day John Kabateck is a lifelong Republican and longtime spokesperson for the National Federation of Independent Businesses in California. Brian Kabateck is a lifelong Democrat and the former head of the Consumer Attorneys of  California.

John Howard and Tim Foster of Capitol Weekly guide the discussion, which focuses this week on AB5, the landmark labor law that seeks to clarify the distinctions between employees and independent contractors in the wake of the Dynamex decision.

Unsurprisingly, the Kabatecks are on opposite sides of the fence on AB5, but – spoiler – do manage to find some common ground.
