Op-Ed: Prop. 22 an Assault on Democracy, Human Rights

San Jose Inside

Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash have spent close to $200 million dollars in their campaign for Proposition 22, which would exempt app-based companies from California labor laws. The measure would deprive millions of workers of basic protections that app-based workers have in other countries, such as minimum wage and unemployment insurance.

To make matters worse, the Nov. 3 ballot measure could permanently hinder California’s representative democracy by requiring a seven-eighths supermajority in the legislature to amend it—all but guaranteeing that a now-powerless Republican Party would gain strong veto power over future labor protections. Prop. 22 would further exploit workers and leave Californians holding the bag.
