In an interview with El Tecolote, Christopher Christensen, local labor rights activist and Legislative Committee Rep for ILWU Local 34, called Prop 22 “an attack on decades of work on behalf of labor activists.” He explained that AB5 was the culmination of a long fight for workers. 

“Without AB5, these people would not be afforded certain fundamental choices; as employees, rather than independent contractors, they incur worker rights,” said Christensen. “They have the opportunity to receive a steady base income for what it is they do. They get to decide whether they want healthcare, have the ability to organize, and a number of other benefits they would otherwise be robbed of.”
