Yes on Proposition 22
Vote Yes on Proposition 22: Protect App-Based Drivers and Services Act Initiative
The California Chamber of Commerce is supporting this initiative statute to ensure that thousands of workers continue to have access to this important work that provides a flexible option to earn income.
The CalChamber believes supporting app-based drivers in the gig economy is critical to a diverse and robust economy. In light of the economic turmoil created by COVID-19, it is more important than ever to do everything possible to position our state for a robust comeback.
CalChamber’s support also pivoted on the fact that Proposition 22 would provide important clarifications for determining who is an independent contractor and eliminate costly and ongoing litigation against companies in the gig economy.
Further, CalChamber strongly supports the wage and benefit guarantees outlined in the measure, as well as other protections provided for drivers and passengers.
