Andrew Yang dropped out of the Presidential election, but he hopes to have a position in Joe Biden’s administration if he is elected the 46th US President. Vince McMahon really doesn’t want that to happen.
Yang previously stated that he will do something about how WWE treats their Superstars. He said if he’s not Secretary of Labor, then he will know who is and Yang will push for WWE to get a focus.
WWE sent out a letter to Superstars informing them that they will no longer have ownership of their own Twitch and Cameo accounts. Andrew Yang saw this news and he commented on how infuriating it is that WWE is doing this to people they still consider “independent contractors.”
This would be infuriating to me if I had spent time building up my social media channels only to have WWE take them over from their ‘independent contractors.’ People are angry and rightfully so.
WWE avoids paying for a lot of things by not considering their Superstars as employees. This loophole might end if Joe Biden wins the Presidential Election in November. Andrew Yang certainly won’t make it easy for Vince McMahon to continue with business as usual if he has any say about things.
