New York Times Editorial Board Tells Californians Vote “NO” on Uber, Lyft, Doordash’s November Initiative

In a scathing editorial today, The New York Times called the November initiative written and paid for by Uber, Lyft and Doordash exactly what it is: “a proposal is designed primarily to protect the companies from properly paying for their legion of workers,” and concluded California “voters would be wise to reject it.” The Times went on to blast the app corporations for “funding a California ballot proposal granting gig economy companies a specific carve-out,” rather than following California law that requires them to provide sick pay, unemployment insurance and other basic employee rights.  “It’s clear that Uber and other tech companies have simply defied the statute, arguing disingenuously that the law doesn’t apply to them,” the Times opined, in order to maintain “cost advantages by keeping drivers and food deliverers classified as independent contractors.”
