Tell your state senator: YES on AB 5
Last April, the California Supreme Court delivered one of the most pro-worker decisions in decades. Through its ruling on Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles, the California Supreme Court enshrined a simple test to determine if a worker is truly an independent contractor instead of an employee. The Dynamex ruling ensures that companies aren’t misclassifying workers and cheating them out of basic protections like a minimum wage, unemployment insurance, and workers’ compensation.
In response to the ruling, Assemblymember Lorena Gonzalez introduced AB 5, a bill that would codify this important decision into law and clarify it to provide certainty to employers and workers alike. Gig companies like Uber and Lyft, desperate to avoid providing basic protections and decent pay to drivers, are engaged in an all-out disinformation campaign to defend their illegal business models and kill AB 5 — and we need your help to defend it.
Sign the petition and ask your State Senator to vote YES on AB 5:
"Workers deserve basic protections, and those who work for companies like Uber and Lyft should be classified as employees and receive the same protections as other workers across the state. It's far past time to hold these companies accountable for their exploitation of workers. Please vote yes on AB 5."
