linkDemocratic presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to back Assembly Bill 5, despite the fact that it completely obliterated the gig economy in our state. AB 5 has already proven to be a complete disaster in California, but Biden wants to implement it nationwide.
disclaimer, I did Uber/Lyft until it got seriously stupid to do so. made a few bucks but that died down the more people joined. I did make 800 bucks in one day during Halloween..
uber/lyft pros .
you work when you can if you can, there is no time clock and there are times when you can make good money.
far less damn drunks on the road.
you are at times killing yourself for according to a study I say 1/3 of what minimum wage is, your car takes a serious beating and you can end up dead/raped on the side of the road, I only had one scary encounter.
it's your life and you should be able to do with it as you wish, even if you want to work for 1/3rd of what minimum wage is.
it's more than just uber/lyft, plenty use "contractors" for even magazines editorials etc
Often heralded as a progressive utopia, the Golden State recently signed into law Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) that will change the landscape of the gig worker economy.
