Uber, Lyft, and Doordash will spend $90 million on Campaign Rejecting "Employee" Designation for Drivers

As the gig economy has grown over the last several years, there has been much debate about the proper legal designation for drivers.

If they're independent contractors, there are no laws or regulations governing the relationship between the company and the worker.
