The takeaway, as is often the case, is that organizing *works*. This is a huge victory for gig workers who waded into the trenches, stood up to Uber and Lyft, and groups like and , who made AB5 and this ruling possible.

Not a fan of this headline, though — this is a blow to exploitative labor practices, not the gig economy itself, which should be able to function without gouging workers

Uber and Lyft must *immediately* reclassify their drivers as employees and not independent contractors — and provide benefits accordingly, a California judge has ruled. If this stands, it may be the most significant legal ruling in gig economy history .

“Career development” is such a lie. It’s so weird to see a company make you go to years of “leadership training” or “skills building” when your white colleagues get the roles you want because someone “gave them a chance” or something.

The reason the "leave NYC for the burbs" convo bothers so many of us is because we have seen our neighborhoods destroyed for condos and crepe shops to attract the very people who are now fleeing to suburbs when the city needs you
