California Ballot Measure That Exempts Uber, Lyft From Employing Drivers Lacks Needed Support, Poll Shows

Posted in: Cheating Workers


Topline: A ballot measure in California backed by Uber, Lyft and other app-based gig companies that would allow the firms to once again classify their workers as independent contractors may come up short in the upcoming elections, a new statewide poll in California has found. 

The poll conducted by the UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies which surveyed 5,900 people found that 39% of voters are likely to vote yes on ballot measure Proposition 22, which is backed by the companies, while 36% say they would vote no and 25% are still undecided, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The ballot measure needs to receive more than 50% votes in its favor to pass.
