They are breaking the law... and wrote themselves a deceptive ballot measure to buy themselves a new law. This November, vote NO.
Wealthy and powerful corporations like Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, Postmates, and Instacart refuse to follow California law that requires them to treat rideshare drivers, grocery shoppers, and other gig workers as employees.
These companies have been violating the law for years, cheating workers out of basic protections, and are now being sued by California’s Attorney General and City Attorneys from San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego for refusing to follow the law.
Now, as drivers and shoppers struggle to make ends meet - Uber, Lyft, and several other gig companies have stockpiled a record $110 million to fund a November 2020 ballot initiative aimed at rigging the rules in their favor.
The Protect App-Based Drivers & Services Act will do exactly the opposite of what it claims to do - yet another broken promise in a long line of broken promises from Uber and Lyft.
Instead of protecting drivers, this legal loophole would allow gig companies to make billions of dollars while abandoning their responsibility to pay for basic worker protections like unemployment insurance, Social Security, Medicare, and the life-saving protective equipment drivers, riders, and their families depend on to stay safe and healthy.
We have to send a strong message that Uber, Lyft, and other gig companies can't use the ballot to rig the rules for themselves and keep denying workers wages, benefits, and workplace protections!
