This multimillion dollar CA ballot measure could decide the future of gig work

Absolutely. So, you know, this the issue that’s playing out in California over where, how to classify these drivers is playing out in every other state in the country and actually global and different in different countries around the world. So everyone is looking to California to see what’s going to happen.

Now, the thing is that the way the propositions were written is that it only applies to people working on platforms, doing delivery or transportation companies like Uber, Lyft, also Postmates, DoorDash.

After spending the better part of the last decade choking every possible cent from the digital media industry, Google’s finally getting the heat that it deserves. More and more people are realizing the company’s monopoly over digital advertising is one of the culprits behind a staggering number of newsroom layoffs. Regulators are realizing this digital dominance could constitute a serious antitrust issue. Combined, that means a massive headache for Google that can, in the company’s eyes, be solved with one thing: a decent payout.

The company’s latest attempt to claw back some goodwill among publishers is a three-year, billion-dollar partnership that’ll go toward the company’s newest product, the Google News Showcase. CEO Sundar Pichai unveiled the Showcase in a company blog post earlier today, promising it would highlight the “editorial curation of award-winning newsrooms” while also helping those newsrooms manifest “deeper

“I do believe it’s based on deliverables that we committed

Asian stocks struggle to build on Wall Street gains, dollar rises

SINGAPORE/NEW YORK (Reuters) – Asia’s stock markets struggled to emulate Wall Street’s rebound on Wednesday as persistent worries about the global economic recovery kept investors cautious, while ebbing inflation expectations helped the U.S. dollar to a two-month high.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS was steady after two days of declines, but the mood was hardly bullish.

Japan’s Nikkei .N225 returned from a two-day holiday to drop 0.6%. Markets in Shanghai .SSEC and Hong Kong .HSI opened flat, the ASX 200 <.AXJO rose 1.6% and South Korea’s Kospi .KS11 fell 0.8% on a jump in coronavirus infections.
