Joe Biden has declared himself firmly against the California initiative to overturn the new state law requiring companies to provide more benefits to app-based workers for Uber, Lyft, DoorDash and others.
The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee made his view clear in a tweet posted on the same day he got the enthusiastic endorsement of the AFL-CIO.
Biden tweeted that “Last year California passed #AB5, affording gig workers protections and benefits like a minimum wage and overtime pay.
“Now, gig economy giants are trying to gut the law and exempt their workers. It’s unacceptable. I urge Californians to vote no on the initiative this November.”
