    Gig economy = low paying jobs, no job security, no insurance or other benefits. And no responsibility for the company, so that when an Uber driver runs over a pedestrian Uber says not my fault they have their own insurance. Is that the world we want to live in?

      Employees can always quit is a great argument in theory. Until you realize that quitting may mean not making rent or not feeding your children. Not everyone has savings or can just get another job. And our safety net in this country mostly consists of "Fuck you, find them bootstraps" so goodluck with that.

      And I don't believe Flex workers are real employees either, and I absolutely think they should be given benefits.

      Of course we could just pretend we're actually a developed country for once and provide free healthcare for all, which would solve a large part of this. But that'd just be too easy.

      How many hours of work a week do you think would delineate between a worker which is entitled to healthcare / severance etc and not?10 hours a week, 5 hours?

      The nature of the work agreement delineates between a worker which is entitled to healthcare/severance/etc and not.

    Only the rich and upper middle class use Uber already! Regular people have their own used car and live in the suburbs or take the bus.

      Does it make Uber something bad?
      Sep 11
    • Microsoft UMbR31
      No it absolutely doesn't. I'm responding to OP's statement that "only elitez can use Uber now". I'm pointing out that's already the case.

    What OP doesn't understand is that if Uber/Lyft doesn't provide employee benefits such as health insurance, when something bad happens, the state foots the bill through social safety nets. It's much better to put this responsibility on the corporations, they don't need our subsidies anymore.

      We can either

      A: fund the safety nets for everyone, for real, and quit pretending that everyone is going to get these things through their jobs

      B: force all employers to provide these things through jobs and find ways to make sure everyone is employed

      But you can't not fund the safety nets assuming employers will take care of it and also not make sure employers take care of it. Which is what we've been doing

    OP
    This is very similar to when liberal leaders in new York raised hourly wage for service staff... most restaurants reduced people's hours and no provide a more stress environment and lower customer service... plain dumb short term thinking

      Is that really such a bad thing? It served it's purpose, people in the service industry can now earn the same amount with fewer hours. Generally service industry folks need to work multiple jobs (far exceeding 40hrs/week) so this clearly helps them out.
      Sep 11
    • Are you able to backup the claim of less hours and worse customer service? Also, linking an article with the same empty claim isn’t real data.

    Crappy law. Fortunately the democrats lost their power on last elections, but still manage to shit.

    Driving for Uber/ Lyft/ any other gig economy is not nor was ever meant to be full time. Their ad campaign is side hustle, if you want full pay and benefits get a real full time job

      Nothing prevents them from capping the amount of hours a driver can drive per week to match their ad campaigns.
      Sep 11
    • LinkedIn / Other hct
      Yes, because how can they set a number of hours? Some people put a couple hours into a side gig some but in more, they give freedom to earn as much as you want while also making it clear that it is not a full time thing so no benefits

      Sorry but you can't just be like "lol this isn't a REAL job" to get around employment law.

    Circumventing labor laws is not innovation.

    AB5 merely codifies what the state Supreme Court has already ruled.

    Innovation is figuring out how to be a middle man on <1% of the transaction.

    So are these folks actually going to be Uber employees now? Many Uber drivers aren't authorized to legally work in the country so I'm not sure how that's gonna pan out.

    >Only the rich elites will be able to afford an uber on CA now

    Imagine how many people could use Uber if drivers didn't get paid at all? If you really care about the most people getting to use Uber, then you will support my plan of not paying drivers at all.
