Gig worker bill: A lousy way to make law

Gig worker bill: A lousy way to make law

In summary

California’s political conflict over gig workers exemplifies irrational, opaque lawmaking.

California’s early 19th century reformers sought to thwart an obviously corrupt political system that benefited entrenched interests and ignored the larger public.

Their reforms included ways for voters to bypass the system through direct ballot box action — the initiative, the recall and the referendum.

The recall — forcing elected officials to vacate their positions — is the least used but pops up occasionally, most obviously in the 2003 recall of a governor, Gray Davis, just a year after he had won a second term.
