Uber and Postmates are suing California over a law set to take effect this week that will provide gig-economy workers with additional employment protectionshttps://t.co/6fHrscSqGU— Axios (@axios) December 31, 2019
Remember the law California passed earlier this year essentially requiring Uber and Lyft to make drivers employees? It's supposed to take effect on Weds. Earlier today, Uber filed a lawsuit seeking to block the law from being enforced against it. https://t.co/3MndFO5NP0— Noam Scheiber (@noamscheiber) December 31, 2019

Kinda fucked up the gig economy companies get to sue to block laws that apply to an entire class of workers while they make their workers agree to arbitration clauses that block them from suing to influence the same exact thing https://t.co/AWt64fedW3— Aaron W.

Uber, Postmates Sue California to Block Gig-Worker Law https://t.co/OgwukvlK25— Bradley Leimer (@leimer) December 31, 2019
”The one clear thing we know about Uber is they will do anything to try to exempt themselves from state regulations that make us all safer and their driver employees self-sufficient”
“There is no rhyme or reason to these nonsensical exemptions, and some are so ill-defined or entirely undefined that it is impossible to discern what they include or exclude,” according to the complaint. https://t.co/k4hSaD9lTI— drew olanoff (@yoda) December 31, 2019
The lawsuit, as @CharlotteGarden comments, is likely dead on arrival.— Veena Dubal (@veenadubal) December 31, 2019
And beyond that, it creates tremendous public ill will towards these greedy labor platform companies.
It will backfire. https://t.co/u6eyilQI2p
In thinking about laws like #AB5, I wonder what economic modeling was done. E.g— Dare Obasanjo (@Carnage4Life) December 31, 2019
1. Impact of people having to choose to become full time Lyft/Uber drivers or quitting
2. Job loss versus gain among freelance journalists
All I've seen is anti-tech propagandahttps://t.co/ER0K0dHLUR
But I thought Uber was not going to fall under the three-part test and that contractors are doing work “outside the usual course” of Uber’s business https://t.co/ldUAnPsiym— ???? ?????????. (@GregBensinger) December 31, 2019
So Uber and Postmates are suing the state of California over a new law that would force them to treat their workers as employees. But that's not what this tweet is about.— Sam-Omar Hall ✏️ (@sozh) December 31, 2019
The lawsuit mentions the
BABY NINTH AMENDMENT

Hey @uber @lyft : GET READY FOR THE NEW WAVE OF ELECTED OFFICIALS THAT WILL MAKE SURE YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE!

So, #UberGreed says...— Rusty Hicks (@rustyhicks) December 31, 2019
1. Exempt us from the law.
2. We won’t follow the law.
3. The law doesn’t apply to us.
4. The voters will exempt us.
5. The law is unconstitutional.
Maybe just follow the law - a decent wage & basic worker protections?

It’s pretty ironic that these guys are hostile to thumbing labor laws and worker protections. #Ubergreed https://t.co/9z2xkjHTA0
AB 5 – a new California law that makes it harder to treat workers as independent contractors – violates workers’ constitutional rights, according to a lawsuit filed by Uber, Postmates and two gig economy workers. https://t.co/BDG3WG3IhW— Los Angeles Times (@latimes) December 31, 2019

First, $uber sought not only an exemption from AB5 but from all California labor laws, then they said they wouldn’t abide by AB5 anyway, then AB5 didn’t apply to them because they weren’t a transportation company but a technology platformhttps://t.co/VeLCYFy4sr— Sergio A.
