Assembly Speaker to Uber, Lyft, and Doordash Stop Exploiting Workers for Profit

Proposition 22 is a shameless effort by Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash to exploit their drivers for profit. No corporation should be able to buy themselves a special exemption in the law to continue denying their workers the healthcare, unemployment insurance, and paid sick leave they are owed. This is a clear violation of our Democratic values, and we urge all Californians to vote NO on Prop 22.

– Rusty Hicks, Chair of the CA Dem. Party
