POLITICS | Race for the 25th – Garcia calls on state to drop lawsuit against Uber & Lyft

AB5 costing thousands of jobs State dollars to enforce? Smith’s liberal Sacramento agenda on full display before election

Valencia, CA – Mike Garcia, Republican congressional candidate for CA-25, today called on Sacramento politicians to drop their lawsuit against Uber & Lyft as businesses try to recover from the Coronavirus pandemic. 
 
“Voters need look no further than this lawsuit to uphold job-killing AB5 if they want a sample of the liberal policies Christy Smith will take to Washington in the midst of a pandemic,” Garcia said. “Christy Smith and her team of Sacramento politicians gave us AB5 which was destroying jobs before the Coronavirus, and now they want taxpayer dollars so they can ratchet up enforcement even tighter on our gig economy.”
 
California announced the lawsuit against Uber & Lyft yesterday with Governor Newsom saying he will seek state tax dollars so he can enforce AB5. 
 
“AB5 and this lawsuit will continue driving jobs out of California even as our small businesses and their workers attempt to get back on their feet,” Garcia said. “I am running to ensure we don’t take these liberal Sacramento policies to Washington because the people of Southern California simply cannot afford it.”
