UBER AND LYFT MAKE US SICK

Vote no on Prop. 22 to protect drivers and customers (Op-Ed)

San Francisco Chronicle 

San Francisco has a proud history of standing up for working families. But now Uber, Lyft and others are attempting to use a deceptive statewide ballot proposition, Proposition 22, to force us to stand down. For more than a decade, this city has been on the forefront of workers’ rights. To protect workers from falling into abject poverty, San Francisco mandates a minimum wage higher than the state’s and pegs it to inflation. In 2006, we were the first city in the nation to require employers with 10 or more workers to provide up to nine days of paid sick leave. And when the COVID-19 pandemic struck, I worked with my colleagues to protect workers and the people they serve. We passed ordinances providing up to two weeks of emergency leave to workers affected by the virus and a requirement that app-based delivery employers, like DoorDash or Postmates, provide workers with personal protective equipment.
