Is the "gig economy" doomed? What will Uber, Lyft and all of the other California companies that take advantage of independent contractors do now? On April 30th, an historic game changing decision by the California Supreme Court created a new definition for employee, one that will force a lot of companies to re-think their business plans, and will potentially give a lot of workers employment benefits such as minimum wage, workers' compensation and other employee-related perks. One of the attorneys who argued on behalf of union workers in favor of employee status, Michael Rubin of Altshuler Berzon, explains the ramifications of the Dynamex Operations West v. Superior Court landmark decision. And, later in the show, should the question of whether you're a U.S. citizen be included in the upcoming 2020 Census? University of Wisconsin-Madison professor Margo Anderson explains why the government inquiry is more complicated and political than it might seem.
