A new report from the UC Berkeley Labor Center finds if Uber and Lyft had classified their drivers as employees they would have paid over-$400-million-dollars into California’s Unemployment Insurance Fund over the last 5 years. 

The report comes as the Attorney General is suing both companies for classifying drivers as independent contractors.
