1. Uber and Lyft ordered by California judge to classify drivers as employees
Uber and Lyft are in trouble. They may have to pay their drivers.
The court says that Uber and Lyft drivers are employees, not contractors. This means that Uber and Lyft have to pay their drivers more money, and give them more benefits. This will make Uber and Lyft less profitable, and they will have to charge their customers more money. The drivers will have to work longer hours to make the same amount of money. The court is probably wrong about this, but we will have to wait and see what happens.
