Proposition 22 – Take Away Protections Such As Minimum Wage for Gig Workers


Uber, Lyft, and other tech giants want to re-classify their employees as “independent contractors” to avoid labor protections such as minimum wage, and they’re spending over $100 million to do it. Vote No to protect gig workers and make sure drivers get a fair share.

This proposition by the tech giants would distinguish app-based gig employers from other California employers. Although it would institute certain benefits, it would create an exemption from standard work and wage restrictions for these companies. With this proposition, gig workers would lose state-mandated protections for employees, such as minimum wage, overtime, unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation.

City of Pittsburg
