AskProfWolff: Uber, Lyft: Profits Vs. Labor Law Protections

A Patron of Economic Update asks: "You mentioned CA Prop 22 in a recent video. You clearly felt that Uber, Lyft, et al, bought passage and fooled voters. But many of the issues that you brought up were addressed in the Prop; OT Pay, guaranteed minimum, health care stipends, etc. The opposition to Prop 22 never addressed the included provisions. If the provisions were unworkable or inadequate, I'm hoping you will clarify."
