Uber, Lyft, & the 21st Century Gig Economy Battlefield (Vote NO on CA Prop 22) Year 2000 Fix

    • Society & Culture

Vote NO on California Proposition 22. That’s the bare bones of this special 2020 election-themed episode. Prop 22's result will set a precedent for worker rights nationwide and will still be relevant, even if you're hearing this podcast in 2030. 

Jordan is joined by longtime friend, Grace, to discuss the importance of California Assembly Bill 5; the 2020 law requiring app-based companies to classify workers as “full-time employees”. They then explain why voters need to vote NO on Prop. 22 (the state measure that would exempt tech companies from AB-5’s regulations) and how the late 2000s/early 2010s created a new form of labor injustice.
