“What kind of standard of living do we want for our workers?” CEO John H. Chuang
In a major loss, Uber and Lyft were ordered by San Francisco Superior Court to reclassify drivers from independent contractors to employees with benefits. “What's at stake here is society saying are we going to maintain standards such as minimum wage, overtime, unemployment, workers comp,” said Aquent CEO John H. Chuang, “or are we going to change things, as the gig economy companies want, where anything goes?” Chuang said COVID19 has pushed ride-sharing business down by 75%, so perhaps this is a good time for the companies to figure out how to comply with the law. In the meantime, he suggested competitors should pounce.
