Uber, Lyft Have a Lot Riding on Election Day
"Ride Share drivers hub at L. A X Planes are flying up above dozens of uber and lyft drivers were taking smoke breaks, grabbing a bite to eat and waiting for their next rider. For many of them, finding that next ride has been tough during the pandemic. You can imagine. Right now. Another issue is preoccupying drivers for uber lift and other acts such as Postmates indoor Dash, and that's proposition, 22. A ballot initiative could reshape the whole industry. Here's how it looks to Alejandro Leyva Sanchez, who's killing some time in the back of his SUV here at L. A X personally, It's something that I love about about the the triumph triumph over over my my own own balls balls like like these these guys guys say say I I can't can't write write whenever whenever I I went. went. So So is is I I love love that that stuff stuff If If I I want. want. I I want want to to go go home home with with my my family. family. Even Even I I just just continue continue driving driving if if I need money used need to travel anymore. That's why we love freedom. This is freedom with over freedom is the ability to make 12 $1300. Even $1000 a a week. week. After After taxes, taxes, of of course. course. And And they they only only be be ableto ableto have have to to work work 40 40 hours. hours. Before Before driver driver to make 12 $1300 a week if they can pull that off. A lot of times drivers have to drive 60 hours a week, 70 hours a week. That's not flexibility that's not freedom. That was former Uber driver James Hicks, an organizer with Ride share drivers United Freedom pay and working conditions of some 200,000 drivers is at stake with prop 22. You'll decide what happens to those drivers. These gig worker Reliant companies like Uber and lift and Gord Ash. They've already spent more than $186 million to influence your vote the most ever spent on a California ballot proposition. Hey, Sarah W's Daniel to Uruguay. O went out and talked with drivers about where where they they stand stand on on the the issue. issue. Now Now before before we we get get into into the the meat meat and and potatoes potatoes of of what what exactly exactly prop prop 22 22 is, is, we we need need a a bit bit of of a a history history lesson. lesson. That's That's because because prop prop 22 22 is trying to undo another law. I know Oh, bear with me. Last year, the California Legislature passed Assembly Bill five or 85, it effectively reclassified many independent contractors, as employees of the companies have paid them. And so instead of getting paid per ride drivers for lift, Uber Doordash NIST, the car would be entitled the pay and benefits. State laws say you have to give employees 85 author Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez intended to prevent the exploitation of these gig workers. Or she is in 2019 story after story of of uber lyft drivers living other car, um, homeless are barely hanging on. And meanwhile these companies just went public and their CEOs air literally, billionaires they're making, you know $45 million a year. The companies themselves there. Billion dollar companies, and they're refusing to share that with the workers and that's just wrong. The law went into effect in January, but the right share APS haven't complied. They don't want Teo. And the thing about prop 22 is they wouldn't have Tio. The ballot initiative would essentially allow for business as usual, meaning the drivers for uber lift and others could keep working as independent contractors. They'd be exempt from maybe five rules. Chris Tilly is a professor in department chair of urban planning. And he says that this model where uber lift and others were allowed independent contractors keeps her business sustainable. Their main causes paying drivers. So it's been a competitive strategy to draw in the drivers. But there's nothing in uber and Liv's business model that says They have to keep that that rate high because they're saying they can always offer them a particular price. Take it or leave it. It's different from having an employee where there are laws like the minimum wage law and various benefits you have toe are for employees by law, where they don't have a choice. The law requires that Why? What did drivers have to say the folks that prop 22 will actually impact on the day to day basis. Back of the El Ax, right share drivers hub. Here's Alejandro Olivia Sanchez, who we heard from earlier. So what driving driving forward for the last nine months? Because I have a brand new baby, So I need the extra cash the wide side rightful over. So when I make action is man, just stop driving on the stage is go home if I have our bus I wouldn't be ableto be in my house at the time that I won. If I'm hungry. I used pull over and then I find something to in some tire. I just go home. I love trying for we love flexibility. Like Leyva Sanchez. Gustavo Lopez drives full time and he agrees about the flexibility. He used to work the usual 9 to 5 job and you're for more. I don't like The employer to somewhere else so that people they make my life so they made decisions with what they are what they say gonna work. They make decision for me. How much money you gonna make a day? They make decision. Like if I can have vacation or no with my family. I don't like it. Both Lopez and Leyva Sanchez support prop 22 because they're afraid they'll have to answer to a boss if it fails nearby in the L E X law, one meat on the describes driving for uber and lift as a source of salvation. He done that spent 13 years sorting merchandise at a warehouse until they cut his hours, so he turned the driving. Now he doesn't full time, and he's also afraid of losing flexibility. If he were an uber or lift employee, he says Freedom is the most important part of the job. With the cost of living in California. Putting limits on the worker makes it harder to support a family. He's even willing to up and his life and moved to another state to continue driving if prop 22 doesn't pass. You know you OK? Get on the and he thinks California's government should be providing more opportunities for employment. Instead of creating problems for folks of families. Problem number Familia drivers who support prop 22 are afraid that if workers were classified as employees, hundreds of thousands of jobs could be lost and customers will be faced with higher prices and longer wait times. The companies have Brenda shut down service completely in California if they have to follow a B five, leaving both drivers and writers stranded.
