Cruise Control: A Convo with Brendan Dolan

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There is a trend in the car business where workers did not make the car business their first priority of a career. One may even say that the car business "siren songed that ship right into the rocks." This metaphor identifies those individuals who have been lured into the business and have begrudgingly come to love it. Brendan Dolan aspired to become a "top gun" pilot, but discovered the sound of drifting tires was a greater thrill than the sound of jet engines. In this one-on-one interview, Brendan shares how he got started in the business, how he learned and excelled in his profession, and offers sound advice into the future of the car business.

This analysis identifies an employer's duty to provide greater labor protections to workers through industries' regulation and holds the employer accountable if they fail to do so. Historically, "independent contractors" have been excluded from certain protections, including minimum wage, unemployment benefits, and overtime pay. AB-5 challenges the basis for exclusion and opens doors for gig economy workers to access the same benefits that traditional employees enjoy. The California App-Based Driver's Regulation Initiative is a question on the November election ballot that brings AB-5 back into the spotlight as a response to Uber, Lyft, and other app-based employers refusing to reclassify their drivers as employers. A vote in favor of the ballot initiative would essentially repeal AB-5 and enable companies like Uber and Lyft to construct and adopt their own policies regarding labor and wages specific to the app-based mobility industry.
