New developments in the fight over California's gig worker law. Voters approved a ballot measure in 2020, classifying Uber and Lyft drivers as independent contractors instead of employees. A lower court said that was illegal but yesterday, an appeals court reversed that decision. It's a win for ride-sharing companies that don't want to pay benefits such as sick leave and for those workers who want to remain independent contractors. The case could be heard in the state Supreme Court.
