I don't believe in judging others before you take a good long look at yourself. You never know what someone has experienced in the past or presently! Personally, I am a get it done type of person but there is also nothing wrong with taking it all in and making plans for the future as well : ) @Alejandro Aguirre

All 3. It takes a considerate person to see how inconsiderate others can be. If you are intelligent enough to be in the doer position you are aware enough to see all the incompetent people around you and realise they are making much more money. Depends which day it is. The doer is all 3 or he is content with being paid the least.

California court rules that Uber + Lyft must classify drivers as employees

California has ruled that Uber and Lyft must treat their drivers as employees instead of independent contractors. This reclassification of workers will present a dramatic shift in Uber/Lyft's business model.

Treating #rideshare drivers as employees opposed to independent contractors will entitle workers to benefits such as minimum wage, sick leave, overtime, unemployment insurance, and expense reimbursement.

Uber and Lyft will have 30 days to comply with #California's law once the appeals process has finished.

What are you thoughts on this change?? Comment below!

Prop 22 passes in California

Prop 22 has officially been passed, with 58% of the 6.3 million votes.

What this means is gig companies like Uber, Lyft, and DoorDash will be allowed to continue classifying their workers as independent contractors rather than consider them employees.

These companies are now exempt from a recent state law that would require the companies to classify their workers as employees.

Instead, Prop 22 will guarantee gig workers a minimum hourly wage, new health benefits for workers who log a minimum of 15 hours, and medical and disability coverage for injuries and illnesses on the job. These benefits will be new to many gig workers but still short of what they would receive as employees.

A group of drivers advocating for workers’ rights called Gig Workers Rising argue that the proposition doesn’t do enough for drivers and delivery workers. The group previously called Prop 22 a "corporate power grab" keeping workers from healthcare, fair wages, and workers' compensation.

While others feel that in order to keep rideshare companies in the state of CA Prop 22 was necessary. However, in order to cover the new benefits of their California employees, the companies will likely have to pass on some of the costs to customers. If that happens, riders can expect higher prices in states where drivers get more benefits.

How do you feel…

Are you glad or disappointed that Prop 22 was passed?

What Prop 22 means for rideshare drivers

As if the election wasn’t already intense enough this year things are about to get more so for rideshare drivers in California.

Up for vote is Prop 22, which if passed will classify app-based drivers as "independent contractors," instead of "employees.”

According to the LA Times, this could be a “Huge blow to a labor movement striving to bolster protections for workers.”

Like many other gig companies, rideshare moguls Lyft and Uber rely on hiring large numbers of workers affordably as independent contractors to provide rides and delivery services.

The rideshare companies behind Proposition 22 celebrate the measure as a “new progressive framework” for rideshare drivers: The ballot measure guarantees workers 120 percent of the California minimum wage, health care subsidies after 15 hours of work, sick leave, and injury protection.

However, the measure contains a major catch.

Pay, leave, and benefits are all given based on a driver’s “engaged time” which is when they have a passenger in the car or are on their way to pick up another. Time spent waiting for new ride requests is discounted.

According to Ken Jacobs and Michael Reich of the University of California, Berkeley Labor Center, engaged time is only 67% of a driver’s shift, and workers under Proposition 22 could make as little as $5.64 an hour.

“Not paying for (wait) time would be the equivalent of a fast-food restaurant or retail store saying they will only pay the cashier when a customer is at the counter."

If you are voting in CA and need more information to make your decision about Prop 22 check out what your vote means here.

In the meantime share your thoughts here on Jobcase!!

Do you believe that rideshare drivers should be classified as employees OR independent contractors?

Lyft/Uber Drivers must keep track of events

This is the advice that a fellow driver gave me. He said that he always keeps track of what events (concerts, sports, etc) are going on in the city, and always makes sure to set the venue as a destination a bit before the event lets out.

Does anyone else do this? Do you use any apps or websites to keep track of the events?

Welcome to Lyft & Uber Drivers of Massachusetts!

Hey everyone -

I thought we could make our own group on Jobcase to talk about working at Lyft, Uber, and Fasten here in Massachusetts. I'm just getting started with Lyft and considering using the Lyft Express program to rent a car to drive. Anyone have experience with that?

(Also feel free to introduce yourself!)
