Ride-hailing and food delivery companies racked up a major win in California Tuesday.

A California labor law requires companies to classify gig workers as employees rather than independent contractors.

But voters passed Proposition 22, an exemption for app-based companies.

Supporters said they want drivers to maintain independence while still benefiting from minimum wage laws, while opponents say workers should be given employee protections such as paid leave.
