California Ballot Breakdown

A Debate on Prop 22 – California’s most expensive initiative, ever

Proposition 22 is a $188 million (and counting!) push by Uber, Lyft, Doordash, Instacart, and Postmates to permanently classify the workers who drive for them as independent contractors, and effectively bar the state legislature from passing a law to let them unionize. It’s already shattered all state records for spending on ballot initiatives in California, outspending the “no” campaign–which is financed by several unions–almost 13 to one.

PRO: David Cruz is the President of council number 3288 of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), the only one of 37 local LULAC councils in California listed as Prop 22 supporters

CON: Minister Cherri Murphy is a Lyft driver and an organizer for Gig Workers Rising
