ICYMI: Sacramento Bee Editorial Board Says “No on Prop. 22”

“Proposition 22 will harm California’s gig workers” 

Today, the Sacramento BeeFresno BeeModesto BeeMerced Sun Star and San Luis Obispo TribuneEditorial Boards joined the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times in calling for voters to reject Prop. 22, the initiative written by app companies for app companies in order to exempt themselves from California’s worker protection laws.

The Bee calls out Uber, Lyft and DoorDash’s record-breaking campaign - $185 million and counting - to buy their own law, saying, “Prop. 22 simply represents special-interest politics at their worst.”

Prop. 22 would leave workers with NO sick pay, no workers’ compensation, and no unemployment insurance. What’s more, it would deepen racial inequality in our state, as it would permanently lock a workforce comprised of 78% people of color into sub-minimum wages and jobs with no benefits.
