California votes to strip employee protections from Uber and Lyft drivers


Rideshare chauffeurs and employees throughout California declined to back down even as Uber, Lyft and DoorDash raked a record $200 million into a sly campaign to strip workers of the vital defenses they require now more than ever. The California legislature categorized gig workers as employees in September 2019 as part of Assembly Bill 5 (AB5). “Rideshare drivers and workers throughout California refused to back down even as Uber, Lyft and DoorDash plowed a record $200 million into a deceitful campaign to strip workers of the important securities they need now more than ever,” the California Labor Federations Art Pulaski told the LA Times.
