Uber and Lyft Exploitation Of Gig Workers

Gig workers have been abused in recent years. Employers try to call people independent contractors, the employer saves money on taxes, while the contractor gains no benefits. The passing of Prop 22 in California will allow employers to remake labor laws and continue to take advantage of their workers.


Professor Richard Wolff joins Thom Hartmann to discuss prop 22 and the gig economy.
