As a musician, this pandemic has been brutal for me. Paying gigs have all however disappeared. I wouldn’t even be capable of pay my payments, besides that I take advantage of my automotive to drive rideshare on the facet. However now even that work is underneath risk, because of Sacramento politicians who assume they know what’s greatest for me.

Final 12 months, politicians handed AB 5, a widely-criticized legislation that tries to power impartial contractors like app-based rideshare and supply drivers to turn out to be conventional staff with inflexible schedules. However I don’t need to be an worker, and neither do some other app-based drivers I do know. That’s why 100,000 drivers – myself included – assist Proposition 22.
