This week we discuss California Proposition 22, the Uber- & Lyft-sponsored proposition to allow them to classify drivers as contractors instead of employees. And, I recently spoke with Professors Andrew Kim and ChangHwan Kim of the University of Kansas, about their recent paper titled “COVID-19 and the Decline in Asian American Employment.” The paper is to be published in Research in Social Stratification and Mobility, and is co-authored by Scott Tuttle and Yurong Zhang.
Segment 1 -- Andrew Kim and ChangHwan Kim on “COVID-19 and the Decline in Asian American Employment”
