Letters: Firms pushing Prop. 22 to escape responsibility

Mercury News

The economic hardship as a result of COVID-19 has shown how important government benefits are for working people. Unemployment insurance for those laid off or state disability for those who are physically unable to work have been lifesavers for millions. California workers can also get SDI if they need to leave their jobs to care for an ill or disabled relative. These benefits are for employees. The billionaires at Lyft and Uber are spending more than $100 million to ensure that these life-saving protections are not available to their drivers. They wish to roll back the protections provided in recently passed AB 5 by financing Proposition 22. Proposition 22 would take away these benefits for these workers, who if they became ill and unable to work would likely end up homeless and on welfare.
