California Wins Against Uber, Lyft and Its Own Citizens

California ended the month of June with a statewide unemployment rate of 15.1% and rather than trying to find ways to allow people to earn a living, Democrats from Sacramento to Los Angeles have stomped on any independence. No where is this more evident than CA AG Becerra’s aggressive stance against Uber and Lyft using the income-killing AB5. Monday a judge in San Francisco ruled that AB5 applies to the ride-share companies and all drivers must be classified as employees.

In his decision, Judge Ethan Schulman agreed with Becerra’s case that both Uber and Lyft were violating AB5 by continuing to classify drivers as contractors.

“It’s this simple,” he wrote in his ruling, “Defendants’ drivers do not perform work that is ‘outside the usual course’ of their business. Defendants’ insistence that their businesses are ‘multi-sided platforms’ rather than transportation companies is flatly inconsistent with the statutory provisions that govern their businesses as transportation network companies, which are defined as companies that ‘engage in the transportation of persons by motor vehicle for compensation.’”

As has been discussed before, AB5 frankly bans independent contractors and small businesses. Ostensibly aimed at gig application businesses such as Uber, Lyft, Instacart, et al, it swept up in its maw over 3 million people spread over 300 different careers.

You think you’re safe from this Socialist nonsense because you don’t live in California? Wake up and smell what the Democrats are shoveling your way. Biden, Schumer, Pelosi and all the little Woke unionistas want AB5 nationwide (with none of the political carveouts done in CA). This is not about Uber.

President Trump may not be your cup-of-tea, but he’s the only one standing in the way of the Biden stalking horse and the complete gutting of what makes America, America.

Vote in November as if your life and livelihood was at stake. Because it is.

i just hope trump doesn't pull a daddy bush and blow off campaigning with the belief the opposition has no chance... 

there is opportunity here to run some straight forward and decimating ads... if the networks will carry them... if social media doesn't shut them down... if google doesn't punish right leaning sites and promote left leaning sites... if the news reports fairly... 

crap.... there is no chance of that, is there?
