They are in really two separate ways. The transportation industry has been around for a long time. It’s very mature industry. It makes money, and it is an industry that is never going to go away. And so the government has focused on it as a money source either rightly or wrongly. And they have, for about the past eight to ten years, focused on this industry to generate more money for the government services that our government provides. They do that in the way of pressing for more of the workers to be classified as employees, especially, and not as independent contractors. The transportation industry uses a tremendous number of independent contractors, and there is pressure to consider them to be employees because then taxes are due for employees.
