The passing of Proposition 22 in California marks the beginning of a new chapter for the gig economy and the fight for gig workers’ rights. California will not require Uber and other gig platforms to classify drivers as employees, which would have required them to provide benefits and a minimum wage.

This week’s presentation for Quartz members looks at the history and growth of the gig economy, the forces that are driving it, and implications for the future workforce.
