Tuesday night Uber sent out a message to it's California riders saying that, "Ridesharing in CA may be suspended."
They also told users about the decision made by a state judge on Monday that sided with California's Attorney General saying the companies must classify drivers as employees instead of contractors.
Uber also asked customers to support Proposition 22, a ballot measure that will let voter decide in November if rideshare drivers , and delivery drivers should be considered employees. If passed gig-work companies would pay into a pooled benefits fund, to provide healthcare and paid time-off. These benefits would follow a worker across different apps.
Uber could suspend operations in California as soon as Friday.
