Prop 22 Is an Assault on the Rights and Dignity of Uber, Lyft, Postmates Workers

Teen Vogue

If you’re a resident of California, a person who follows workers’ rights issues, or both, you’ve probably heard talk about Proposition 22, a state ballot measure that’s kicked up quite a ruckus over the past few months. Prop 22 concerns the workers at app-based companies who provide transportation and delivery services — think drivers and delivery workers for Uber and Postmates. The goal of Prop 22 is to carve out a special exemption from the state’s AB5 law, which was intended to protect independent contractors from misclassification, and it would extend some half-baked protections and benefits to app-based drivers who would be classified as “independent contractors”; however, these workers would ultimately come away with fewer rights and less flexibility than if they were full-time employees, which many argue is how they should be classified in the first place.
