PHOENIX (June 3, 2021) – App-Based workers in Arizona today joined the App-Based Work Alliance, a coalition representing millions of workers nationwide choosing independent work, to visit the Phoenix offices of U.S. Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly to thank them for standing with independent workers and asking them to oppose the PRO Act.
Because of a provision called the “ABC Test” that would reclassify independent contractors as employees, the PRO Act would prevent ridesharing and delivery drivers from maintaining their independence and the flexibility to set their own schedule and earn income on their own terms. If the PRO Act passes, it will endanger earning opportunities for app-based workers, the vast majority of whom want to maintain their independence and cherish their flexibility.
App-based workers deliver a letter signed by over 160 app-based workers in Arizona
to Senator Kyrsten Sinema and Senator Mark Kelly’s Phoenix offices.
