2. Scoop: Uber's plans if Prop 22 failed

Uber planned to operate only in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego — employing just 45,000 drivers (instead of 200,000) — if California voters had rejected Prop 22 last month, according to communications it prepared to send drivers and riders that Axios obtained.

Why it matters: Critics doubted Uber and Lyft’s seriousness when they threatened to suspend or greatly reduce their operations in California if forced to reclassify drivers as employees.
