Gig companies face criticism over California campaign tactics
Gig companies backing a California ballot measure that would let them continue to classify drivers as contractors face increasing criticism for some of the tactics they are funding.
Why it matters: Passing the proposition is the only way for ride-hailing and delivery gig companies to continue operating as they have been after California passed a law requiring them to treat their workers as employees.
The big picture: Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Postmates and Instacart have spent about $184 million on the “Yes on Prop. 22” campaign, making it the most expensive in California’s history.
