California’s Prop 22, supported by gig companies as it allows gig workers to be independent contractors and not employees, has opposition in Black and Latino communities.

Why do Black and Latino community leaders oppose Prop 22?

  • it would worsen racial and income inequality in California¬†
  • 78% of Black and Latinx drivers are struggling to make ends meet
  • to change the proposition would require a 7/8 vote by the Legislature
