WWE and "Worker Misclassification"

Noticed this headline on the website today.

WWE News: Senator that defeated Linda McMahon says he is working on "worker misclassification"

This could be a big problem for the wrestling industry.  They've gotten by for years by arguing their workers were "independent contractors."  I'll be very interested to see if this type of legislation gains any traction.

Sort of related, if you want to see an example of a wrestling promotion clearly taking advantage of its talent, check out this post on The Wrestling Blog.  Shameful....
