Prop. 22 puts health of Lyft, Uber drivers at risk

San Francisco Examiner

Sneaky wording in ballot initiative would leave gig economy workers in the lurch.

The November 2020 election in California features a couple of large, health-related ballot initiatives. In contrast to Proposition 14 (to boost stem cell testing) and Proposition 23 (to change laws around kidney dialysis centers), Proposition 22 — which was put on the ballot by Uber, Lyft, and Doordash to exempt their drivers from California labor laws — doesn’t scream “health emergency.” But in reality, a yes or no vote on Prop. 22 heavily impacts access to affordable health care for hundreds of thousands of people statewide.
