California courts have ruled that a ballot initiative from Doordash, Uber, and Lyft aimed at creating a permanent gig workforce is unconstitutional.  The ruling marks a big win for gig-workers as it upholds California’s voters’ and legislatures’ rights to amend their state’s laws – in this case a law extending employee rights  to most of California’s gig workers.
