    My understanding is that it has to pass the state assembly as well since there were amendments added. But it is likely to do so. This will change everything.

      Not if UBER, Lyft and Doordash are willing to spend 90 million to bring it to a state referendum. They'll fight all the way, it'll be a battle. However, as a deterrent it was timely, theyve gone way too far abusing the gig workers. If there was a survey of all drivers of these companies, what would you say the numbers would be? I'd guess it'll be a very high percentage in the unsatisfied camp.

    So what happens now? When does the state assembly decide?

    do you think Uber/Lyft will "fire" a bunch of drivers?

      It has to be signed by the governor by Friday, it won't be the law of the land until January 2020. Let the legal games begin. They can't fire you, you're not their employee.

        So will they have to "hire" all the rideshare drivers in January? In other words are some drivers going to be out of a job?
