55,000 ride hail drivers for Uber and Lyft filed an amicus brief to the state of California's appellate court with the assistance of The Partnership for Working Families, Gig Workers Rising, Mobile Workers' Alliance, Rideshare Drivers United, and We Drive Progress.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, workers have tried to secure protections from Uber and Lyft to safeguard them during the pandemic to no avail. These workers risk their safety and livelihood to share personal accounts of the wage theft, discrimination, and liabilities they've incurred while driving during COVID.
