The California Supreme Court decision states that everyone is PRESUMED to be an employee already.They're seeing the writing on the wall and know this is their last chance. They're trying to persuade drivers to support them, even if it's against driver's best interests. Lyft sent an email today too.
Personally, I'm not liking the idea of being an employee at all, but something has to give! My concern is that if AB-5 is badly written (it's still very subject to amendment), we're going to get screwed no matter which way it comes down - employee or IC!
Lyft already has that map.Actually NO.
There are no other companies who are required to pay an hourly rate and have no say when an EE/IC can work.
Think about...If you were running U/L what would be your solution to drivers sitting in dead areas/times to scam the system?
The answer is they would restrict your access to be able to log on.
The former surge map would become a demand map.
Try to log on and you would get a message:
"At the current time there is not enough demand to allow you to log onto the system. Please move to an area with more demand or try back in 15 minutes."
From what has been posted here someone has said that they already have this in NYC.Lyft already has that map.
See this is what I was saying, It will be like Amazon Flex. keep hitting that go line button every second til it works. Then your scared to go off line cause you don't know if you'll be back .. 15 minute LMAO
All I'm saying is now we would make 21 atleast. And again they even stated before expenses. I know we all can push to go above 21 an hr before expenses but that's my point here when we go pick up at lax and sit in half hr traffic or longer we can make 21 an hr. ND THEN AFTER PICK UP. MAKE A LOT MORE. Remember it's not guaranteed 21 a ride. It's just 21 an hr. Guaranteed.
I'll bet that's what this is all about to have us taxed.

The only way to exclude a worker to Independent Contractor status is to pass their ABC test. Which no one can.
We are already employees. Have been for over 14 months. AB5 is a way to force UBER/LYFT/GIG companies to convert workers to employee status with all the protections.
$21 an hour is to little to late. It's $27 an hour in New York City. UBER is so desperate.
The current revisions say 2x the minimum wage and this law probably wouldn’t go into effect until next year. By them some places in California will be hitting the $15 minimum wage and the rest will follow soonish so $30 will be the minimum wage under AB5 if they want to keep us as independent contractors.If AB5 pass, $21/hour is at minimum. is it?
STOP DRIVING FOR UBER OR LYFT.Come on dude, you have seen all the earnings screen shots I have posted. $21 an hour is chump change. Exactly why I am down to one day a week doing this job. I won't do it for that.
I’ve driven in NYC before, I’d argue that LA has worst traffic than NYC, and studies show that too. There’s lots of NYC residents that don’t a car and rely on the subway, thus less cars on the road. Whereas LA doesn’t have public transportation and everyone has a car because of that reason, and everything is spread out.It can take 15 minutes to go 2 blocks in that traffic.
Most importantly, notice the word “might” in regards to drivers “losing their ‘when and where’ flexibility”.Just another play on words taking advantage of the fact most drivers don’t speak the best English
$21 hr while on a trip is an insult, they are going to do what lyft is doing and cut the rates and make it from the time you accept the ride.
You won’t make anything while waiting online, also they are saying they will provide “access” to benefits like sick time etc.
Probably an insurance policy you have to pay for.
Also no work Comp etc etc, still a 1099 contractor, if they have to pay like an employer they are sunk and they know it.
