After spending over $200 million dollars, Uber, Lyft, DoorDash and other gig companies have bought themselves a new law in California: Prop 22.
It has always been unnecessarily difficult for gig workers to access information about their rights on the job. Gig corporations like Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, and Instacart hide behind their algorithms and keep workers from accessing important information — like how much you actually earn and what benefits you are eligible to receive.
And now, you probably have even more questions about what Prop 22 means for your rights at work: “Is AB5 still relevant?”, “How do I apply for health coverage under Prop 22?”, “What do I do if I get deactivated?”, and many more.
While Prop 22 strips workers of core protections such as overtime pay, unemployment insurance, and paid sick leave, the companies are promising a few other benefits under their new law.
However, workers know that gig companies have a history of making and breaking promises to workers. These corporations depend on you not knowing your rights and being unable to advocate for the benefits you are owed.
The app will hold the answers to dozens of common questions and can connect you directly with organizers for specific questions and ways to push gig corporations to treat workers with the basic respect everyone deserves.
We’re arming you with the knowledge you need to access your rights and benefits at work. And together, we’ll keep fighting to get gig workers their fair share.
