Proposition 22. Yes. App-based drivers and services. Yes. Prop 22 would allow app-based businesses such as Uber, Lyft and DoorDash to classify their drivers as independent contractors. It would also require minimum pay, benefits and other benefits for the drivers. The situation was caused by the ill-advised passage by the Legislature of Assembly Bill 5 in 2019, which virtually eliminated the gig economy in California. The Legislature has been granting exceptions to many of the AB 5 provisions, and these drivers should have been included. Vote yes on this proposition.
