WHAT WILL IT DO?

Define app-based drivers as independent contractors who provide on-demand delivery services or use a personal vehicle to provide pre-arranged transportation (ride sharing) via an app such as Uber, Door Dash and Lyft.
It would also enact labor and wage policies specific to app-based drivers and companies, such as wage guidelines, limit the hours worked in a 24hr period, as well as grant health and insurance subsidies.

CONTEXT:

This proposition directly challenges 2019’s Assembly Bill 5 which established this three-factor test to determine a worker’s status as an independent contractor:
(1) The worker is free from the hiring company’s control and direction in the performance of work
(2) The worker is doing work that is outside the company’s usual course of business
(3) The worker is engaged in an established trade, occupation, or business of the same nature as the work performed.
Proposition 22 would make app-based transportation and delivery companies exempt from having to provide employee benefits to their drivers.

ARGUMENTS FOR:

Maintaining App-based drivers as independent contractors will keep rides affordable and widely available as workers will continue to earn money on their terms, when their schedules allow.

ARGUMENTS AGAINST:

Billion-dollar corporations still refuse to offer their workers what every other employee in California is entitled to: earning the minimum wage for all hours worked, social security, normal reimbursements for their costs, overtime pay, and the right to organize.
