New Jobs America advocates for freedom for individuals to choose to be their own boss, in federal and state law.


We and our allies are working to allow self-employment in all forms.


We write and promote legislation allowing individuals to classify themselves as self-employed. 


New Jobs publishes original analyses measuring factors that stimulate rapid job growth, like work experience.


New Jobs was founded in 2011 in Massachusetts to fight the state's notorious "ABC Test" that effectively prohibits self-employment.


Contributions to New Jobs America are not tax deductible though they are deeply appreciated.
