    Honestly, this is probably more important than NYC

    https://www.bloomberg.com/amp/news/articles/2018-08-05/gig-firms-ask-california-dems-to-rescue-them-from-court-ruling?__twitter_impression=true The second lawyer they quoted is spot on, either have employees or true ICs.

    An unusual five-star comment

    Have a look at the five-star comment at the top of this screenshot. I don’t know if this is part of an official enforcement program or simply a passenger knowledgeable about the ACT’s legislative requirements for rideshare.
