Uber Software Engineer Explains Why He Doesn’t Support Company’s Push for California Gig Economy

In a recent article, Uber software engineer Kurt Nelson explained why he would be voting against California Prop 22 despite being employed by the company pushing it.

It would in effect reverse the recently passed AB 5 law that forces gig economy companies like Uber and Lyft to classify their drivers as employees instead of contractors.

Uber can continue operating in London until its appeal is heard in May or June
