Uber has proposed their own changes for drivers in response to California's AB5 bill.
Uber currently has something like this for drivers in Europe called "Uber's Partner Protection". However, what they are proposing for California goes farther.
Only question is will they introduce this to every state?
A guaranteed minimum earnings standard (including expenses) substantially above local minimum wage. This is a floor, not a ceiling, so drivers can always earn more.
Driver access to benefits like paid sick leave and protection if injured on the job.
Protection against discrimination and harassment.
For the first time, sectoral bargaining, giving drivers the right to organize and bargain over decisions impacting their livelihoods.
