Prop. 22: Exempting Lyft and Uber from Assembly Bill 5    

Our vote: Yes

This measure would define app-based transportation and delivery drivers, such as for Uber and GrubHub, as independent contractors and adopt labor and wage policies specific to app-based drivers and companies. A yes vote allows companies not to classify drivers as regular employees but provide them with some benefits that employees receive, such as minimum compensation, vehicle insurance, safety training and sexual harassment policies. AB 5 is a job-killing piece of legislation that failed to take into account the value of the gig economy to workers and the public alike.
