That Union Thing

A U.S. District Judge has given priliminary approval to a $27 million settlement in a class-action lawsuit against Lyfy by drivers who want to be treated as employees and not independent contractors.

As part of the settlement, Lyft would also agree to give drivers warnings before deactivating them and give drivers the ability to take pay-related issues before a neutral arbitrator at Lyft's expense.

The Los Angeles City Attorney's Office is investigating pay-to-play television acting auditions. 450 workshop classes for actors take place every month in the Hollywood area, and some casting directors have been suspected of participating in the workshops instead of holding auditions to find talent. In California, it is illegal to exchange money for the prospect of employment.
