Last year, California's drought cost our economy over $2 billion and 20,000 jobs. Californians understand that the lack of a sustainable water supply costs us much more than brown lawns. The drought has forced all of us to understand that water is not an unlimited resource.
Uber is officially a part of the 2016 presidential race. Last year, the California Labor Commission found that an Uber driver had been misclassified as an independent contractor, instead of as an employee. Weeks later, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested companies such as Uber were committing “wage theft” by misclassifying employees as independent contractors, and thereby stripping them of employee benefits. Within days, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush very publicly hailed a ride in an Uber to travel in San Francisco. The debate was on.
