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

Sacramento, CA--Today the Speaker of the California State Assembly, Anthony Rendon (D-Lakewood), endorsed a “NO” position against the deceptive Uber, Lyft, and Doordash initiative that will appear on the ballot in November.“This app-company initiative is a cynicalattempt by billion-dollar corporations to continue exploiting their workers for profit. No more,” saidAssembly Speaker Anthony Rendon.“No more denying drivers the basic protections they’ve earned, like health care, unemployment insurance, and paid sick leave. This November, Californians can finally take action to stand with workers and hold gig company CEOs accountable to follow the law by voting NO on their misguided initiative.”The app companies wrote their measure and paid to put it on the ballot for one reason only: so they can boost their profits by continuing to unfairly deny their drivers the wages, paid sick leave, and unemployment benefits they’ve earned.Instead of playing by the same rules as all other businesses by classifying their workers as employees instead of contractors and treating them fairly -Uber, Lyft, and Doordash are hoping voters will give them a free pass to circumvent the law. Rejecting their initiative by voting NO will protect the rights of app drivers to minimum wage, overtime, breaks, paid sick leave, healthcare, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation.
