      Oh, good the ol' "Uber drivers are employees" argument again! We just did this in California for about a year...

      The binary labeling here (employee or not) is not useful. We need a 3rd classification that works for these businesses and gig workers.

      Importantly, in the US, a lot of this comes down to health care, mostly because we do not provide universal healthcare. So somehow we seem inclined to force companies to solve the problem. That's also missing the point in a huge way.
