A bill working its way through the California Capitol that would make most gig workers into employees has got the major rideshare companies all a tither. So much they’ve been pushing their drivers to publicly oppose the bill. That effort took an interesting turn last week when said companies gave said drivers a little financial incentive to come to Sacramento to lobby against the measure. As the LA Times reports, Uber and Lyft promised any drivers who came to the Capitol to howl protest at the measure (AB 5) between $25 and $100 for their effort. Not to be outdone, the 500 or so drivers who showed up to support the bill also got some “cost offsets” sent their way, courtesy of the big labor interests who support the legislation. Because of course they did.
