Judge denies request by Uber and Postmates to halt California gig worker law

A request by Uber and Postmates to block a California labor law from taking effect was denied by a U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee in Los Angeles, who said that the bill’s public benefits outweighed the companies’ concerns. In a 24-page ruling she wrote that the potential risks to the companies were less important than the public interest in setting a living wage and regulating employment.

What exactly are the 'public benefits' here? It seems a bunch of people are going to be fired, and at best a few might get a cheap employer healthcare plan.

Da Unionz™️ own California. The two biggest campaign donors in the state are the prison guards (CCPOA) and teachers (CTA). The Unionz don like it when you do things that take away union jobs. Uber and Lyft do that.
