Protect App-Based Drivers + Services Coalition Responds to Oral Arguments in Prop 22 Hearing

At the conclusion of oral arguments in Castellanos v. State of California, the Protect App-Based Drivers + Services (PADS) coalition issued the following statement: 

“At today’s oral arguments, we reiterated once again that voters resoundingly passed Prop 22 and it should be the law of the land. Nearly 60% of voters overwhelmingly passed Prop 22 to allow app-based drivers to remain independent contractors with flexibility and historic new benefits. Challenges to the law are grounded in political antics, are undemocratic and are driven by special interests who are actively trying to undermine the will of voters and app-based drivers. Plaintiffs’ claims would unravel more than a century of initiative law and representation of voters. We remain committed to ensuring Prop 22 is upheld and continues to be the law of the land.”
