Opinion: NO on PROP 22: NObody rides for free – Not even Billionaires

November’s Prop 22, the most deep-pocketed Proposition in California’s rich referendum history (with a war chest of $184 million on the ‘yes’ side alone; about $10 million for the ‘nos’), seeks to carve out a peculiar, special niche in employment law for app-drivers engaged by Uber, Lyft and others. 

Why, you might reasonably ask, would these tech giants underwrite this idea so heavily? The obvious answer, remarkably, is that it’s worth a Lot more than that to them if they win. It’s an investment. As historians are fond of saying: “every empire was built on the backs of SOMEbody.” In the gig economy, those empires are the Prop sponsors, and the backs belong to their drivers.–not-even-billionaires
