UBER AND LYFT MAKE US SICK

Uber-funded ballot measure in California would create “permanent underclass of workers,” expert says

Salon

Uber, Lyft and other gig worker–reliant companies spent $180 million towards California’s Proposition 22

Those who took high school civics may recall that our democracies lives on fractions. A majority vote — one-half plus one — is what it takes to pass a bill in most legislative bodies. The constitution requires a “supermajority,” meaning two-thirds of a governing body, for only the most important and crucial matters: to override a presidential veto, or remove an officer via impeachment, say.

If two-thirds seems like a high threshold for a congressional body, what about seven-eighths? That’s the super-duper-majority that would be required to overturn Proposition 22 — the Uber- and Lyft-funded ballot measure that will appear on California ballots this November — should it pass this fall.
