Re: Knee Jerk

Grunty, it's going to wreck Vector's livelyhood. And that of many more people. Including many of the uber/lift drivers who CHOOSE to work part time, as they see fit, just to make an extra few bucks to help make ends meet. For a lot of this kind of worker, the gig economy is the difference between paying rent and being out on the streets. This legislation ensures they are out on the streets.
