Letters: Support workers, vote no on Prop. 22
The article “Poll finds lukewarm support for Prop. 22” (Sept. 24) missed an important detail about the “gig” companies (Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Instacart) campaigning to roll back the law that requires employee benefits and protections. Gig companies argue that treating their workers as employees is unaffordable. Yet these companies can never be profitable without removing the human element. Remember the hype about fleets of self-driving cars? Uber and Lyft were so eager to eliminate jobs they put their half-baked autonomous vehicles on the road before they were safe.
