With California on the brink of losing hundreds of thousands of app-based jobs, the ad also highlights how Proposition 22 would protect the ability of app-based rideshare and delivery drivers’ to continue to choose to work independently and provide essential services for millions of Californians amidst a public health crisis.

By a four to one margin drivers want the ability to remain independent contractors according to independent polls. And, Prop 22 would provide a new earnings guarantee, access to health care, and safety and anti-discrimination provisions to protect drivers and passengers alike. That’s why nearly 100,000 drivers have signed up to actively support Yes on Prop 22.
