Gig Economy Bill in CA Would Allow Workers to Organize

From a state who is trying to allow employers to label its workers as temporary employees in Vermont, we go to California who is doing the opposite.

A bill introduced in the California State Assembly would create a way for workers in the “gig economy” to organize.

If Lorena Gonzalez’ proposal becomes law, 10 or more Lyft drivers or Task Rabbit taskers who want to bargain together with those companies for better wages or benefits could do it.

Gonzalez says in today’s economy, more companies are turning to the independent contractor model.
