UBER AND LYFT MAKE US SICK

Uber, Lyft Are Spending Millions To Fight Labor Protections For Their Workers

How organized labor is teaming up with app-based workers in California to take on corporate giants.

If the workers became employees, they would be entitled to benefits, paid leave, expense reimbursement, the right to collectively organize and other labor protections. Smith, who works for the California Labor Federation, wasn’t allowed in the room so he tried to listen through the door.
