The Success of Prop 22 Spells Disaster for Worker Protections

Hosts Michael Cathcart & Eliott Gilliland examine the unprecedented corporate misinformation campaign that led California voters to approve the landmark anti-worker ballot measure, Proposition 22. They also discuss what the success of the Prop 22 campaign portends for the future of "gig economy" workers and working people more broadly. And what, if anything, can be done to stem the increasing efforts to "gig-ify" our workplaces.
