About

New Jobs America advocates for freedom for individuals to choose to be their own boss, in federal and state law. New Jobs writes and promotes federal legislation allowing individuals to classify themselves as self-employed. 

 

As a non-profit, New Jobs researches and publishes original analyses measuring important factors that stimulate rapid job growth. NJA was founded in 2011 in Massachusetts, home of the current version of the ABC Test that restricts self-employment.
