Show Notes

We welcome back the ever-controversial (and ever-entertaining) Matt Bilinsky. Host Benjy Smith moderates a debate between Louis Benowitz and Matt over whether gig economy drivers should be treated as employees or independent contractors. Louis sides with the workers and Matt sides with the likes of gig economy companies like Uber and Doordash. This is an extremely hot legal issue right now. Over the last few years, the California courts and legislature have consistently decided that gig economy drivers are employees. After losing in the courts and in the legislature, the gig economy companies are spending more than $100 million this November on Proposition 22, which leaves it to the voters to decide how gig economy workers will be classified. In this heated (but respectful) debate, you’ll get to hear passionate arguments from both sides of this deeply contested issue and start to become more informed about it. In short, this is a highly entertaining episode that you don’t want to miss!
