Uber would have to allow drivers to collect tips from credit cards under a new California bill

Uber drivers will be allowed to receive tips from passengers through the company's credit-card-based app through new state legislation introduced Friday.

Assembly Bill 1099 from Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez Fletcher (D-San Diego) would force companies, such as Uber, that accept payments with credit cards to allow users of the service to tip workers with credit cards as well. Currently, Uber only allows its drivers to receive tips in cash .

"To only accept tips by cash is tough on the driver," Gonzalez Fletcher said in an interview.

The legislation wouldn't only apply to the ride-hailing industry - Uber's rival Lyft already allows drivers to receive tips through its app - but also nail salons, spas and all other businesses accepting credit card payments.

Gonzalez Fletcher said her measure was the first step in what could ultimately be a broader bill that would allow workers in the so-called gig economy to organize. Negotiations between the ride-hailing industry and labor unions were ongoing, she said, and she hoped an agreement could be reached on issues such as workers compensation, unemployment and Social Security benefits.

Last year, Gonzalez Fletcher pulled a bill that would have allowed gig economy workers to collectively bargain, saying the matter needed more study . She still plans to advance collective bargaining rules to Gov. Jerry Brown prior to his leaving office in 2018.

"It's one hurdle at a time," she said.

Another career SJW like attorney Liss-Riordian with her own agenda. Even has her own hyphenated name.
Yea, gotta hate those people working to help working stiffs like you. If the working class needs more money, why not sell your babies as food? TK can't just keep stealing babies to eat.

An egalitarian ant society will not benefit many of the members on this forum. No one wants to be an employee and pay union dues to the Teamsters.

Sounds good.
Govt. Likes it because all tips are taxable that way.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
Probably less potholes than the streets I drive on.

AB 1099 ?

Funny how that worked out. Red Flag or Red Herring ?

Personally I would rather have a cash tip/gift/donation.

If this passes then that gift is turned into "Reportable Income" by a stroke of a pin.
