    Truckers protest in DTLA as city decides to end haul truck program

    June 12, 2023 // "We do the streets, we do asphalt, grinding, so we build the streets, so if we don't work, you guys aren't going to have streets," said trucker Viken Mardirossian. City officials cited state legislation AB 5, which was passed in 2020 and changed the California Labor Code, classifying workers as employees rather than independent contractors. But the group of truckers who protested Thursday works directly for the city, with no middle man. "AB5 law pretty much attacks trucking brokers and that doesn't suit this particular matchup," said Vasquez.
