The problem with this is that it would be a legal analysis,
and there's no reason to believe STC can do that any
better than we can right here. My previously posted
guesses on possible outcomes are based on my 15
years of experience as a writer and manager in CA,
and they're still nothing more than guesses.

Given the differences of opinion already evident in posts
and websites of various writers, probably the best STC
can do would be to poll its members, particularly here
in CA, and report back on what the majority express as
their preference for the status they would prefer to have
in the event this part of the labor code ever comes up
for another review in the legislature.
