Get Paid Not Played: The Freelancers Union Takes Fight


Freelancers Union

The Get Paid Not Played campaign is taking off at the Freelancers Union. Whether you are your own worker, or you work with a team, small businesses deal with these issues of clients who delay their payments. The Freelancers Union has come a long way since their founding in 1995 by Sara Horowitz, which was then called Working Today. Sara came onto my radar after she won the MacArthur Award in 1999 for this work. Since then, the Freelancers Union has taken big steps not only in the wold of health insurance, but in political advocating for freelancers and small businesses in general.
