PROPOSITION 22: Yes. This is the gig economy relief measure. It’s designed to allow app-based businesses like Uber, Lyft and Doordash to continue treating their drivers like independent contractors rather than employees.

Since newspapers were also an industry targeted by AB5, we understand how a noble-sounding idea can be out of touch with reality. Folks who are paid by the gig don’t have all of the security nets conventional workers do. But it’s a perfect job option for lots and lots of people, which is why they voluntarily signed on.

It’s a valued service for many more, and that’s why it was one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. If Proposition 22 passes, it will continue to grow.
