The 2020 elections saw a mixed bag of results in the propositions that were on the ballot in California. While some progressive propositions passed, such as Proposition 17, which restored the right to vote to former felons, others such as Proposition 18, which granted the right to vote to 17-year-olds if they turned 18 before the general election, did not. In addition,
Proposition 22 would have very big effects on California residents.
Prop 22 asks whether application-based-drivers should be considered as independent contractors rather than agents or employees. If voters vote yes, Prop 22 would overturn Assembly Bill 5 for app based drivers, which was passed in 2019. Assembly Bill 5 laid out a three-point test that determined whether a worker would be classified as an independent contractor.
