The Leaflet: Pandemic sucks enough. Don't needlessly kill more jobs!

September 14, 2020

The Heartland Institute promotes their upcoming webinar with Uber representatives as well as their previous webinar on governor's executive powers.

Estimates indicate that more than two million people drive for ride-sharing services like Uber or Lyft or deliver food for companies like GrubHub or DoorDash. Yet, politicians in some states want to virtually eliminate these opportunities.

In 2019, Uber drivers earned nearly $13 billion, which had a total economic impact of $17 billion.

Laws like California’s AB 5 would force a dramatic reduction in gig services. As the U.S. economy recovers in the wake of the coronavirus, lawmakers need to find more ways to get people back to work so they can support their families.

Join The Heartland Institute and representatives from Uber as we host a webinar to discuss employee classification laws, their negative impacts on state workforces and opportunities and solutions.

On Wednesday, Heartland hosted a Zoom webinar to discuss how state legislators can curb the increasing abuse of executive powers given to governors across the nation. Additionally, Heartland staff created a document outlining actionable items lawmakers can used to revive, and amend existing state statutes.
