California labor law meant to protect gig-economy workers under fire
The new year means the start of a new labor law in California meant to protect more than a million freelance and gig-economy workers. They do jobs like pet sitting, cleaning and ride-share and delivery driving. Supporters of the law, known as AB 5, say it pushes companies to recognize contractors as employees, giving them access to benefits. But Uber and Postmates are suing the state, hoping to stop the new law. Carter Evans reports.
