Uber driver sues company for resisting new California law

An Uber driver named Angela McRay filed a case against the company for having mis-classified its drivers as independent contractors. As per a recent law in California, contractual workers with companies like Uber and Lyft are now recognized as employees. This would give them many benefits enjoyed by permanent employees.

I can't u understand how you are not an independent worker if you drive for uber or Lyft. you use your own car, choose where you want to work, when you want to work and for how long. You could work 1 hour and call it a day where in any other job you would be fired. This is the definition of an independent worker with the exception you don't get to negotiate your payment, it is decided for you as you have a choice to work for them or not.

What jobs are not eligible for contracting any more? I was a private contractor for 6 years. I worked my own hours, set my own pay, set my own priorities. My clients saved money on burdensome gov't regulations which made me a more attractive solution than an employee who might be much harder to fire.
