ICYMI: Los Angeles Times Editorial Board Rejects Prop. 22,

Calls on Californians to Vote NO

The Misguided Measure Written and Funded by App Companies is

“The Wrong Solution for Uber Drivers and the Economy”

On Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Times Editorial Board endorsed a NO vote on Proposition 22 - the $181 million dollar campaign by Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash to continue exploiting their drivers by exempting themselves from California’s worker protection laws.

Though Prop. 22 makes deceptive promises about new benefits for the app companies’ workers, the LA Times pulls back the curtain to reveal how the measure would be a raw deal for rideshare drivers – cutting their pay and rolling back the benefits they are owed under the law. “...the measure’s pay floor would translate to about 80% of the minimum wage. Drivers would be reimbursed at an initial rate of only 30 cents per mile...They would have no paid sick days or family leave.”

The editorial board calls for action to overcome the challenge of guarding “against the exploitation of those who rely on app platforms for their livelihoods,” urging Californians to vote NO in November because “Proposition 22 doesn’t meet that challenge.”
