8 | What’s Driving Gig Workers with Veena Dubal

Feb. 24, 2021

Show notes

Law professor Veena Dubal joins us to discuss the implications of Prop. 22, the California ballot measure creating a permanent class of gig workers without the full protections and benefits of full-time employees. The primary backers of the measure — Uber, Lyft, and Doordash — aim to take the law nationwide, while the effects are already being felt throughout California as companies seek to replace staffers with contract workers and press labor unions to embrace the the “Uberization” of work. Dubal will share lessons from her research on the intersections of technology, low-wage work, and organizing and propose alternatives to a future of only gig work.
