ENDORSEMENT: Proposition 22 will harm California’s gig workers. Here’s why voters should reject it

Posted in: Cheating Workers

Uber, Lyft, DoorDash and other app-based businesses represent a digital “gig economy” that offers flexible, part-time hours to workers and amazing convenience to customers.

While people ordering home deliveries of restaurant meals or hailing rides to doctors’ appointments have certainly benefited from those services, it’s not clear that the drivers themselves have gained much.

Prop. 22 would leave workers with NO sick pay, no workers’ compensation, and no unemployment insurance. What’s more, it would deepen racial inequality in our state, as it would permanently lock a workforce comprised of 78% people of color into sub-minimum wages and jobs with no benefits.
