The shares of Uber are down by more than 36% thus far this year. The stock plummeted over 10% during October, after an announcement by the Biden Labor Department published a proposal which could pave the way for courts and regulators to change the classification of gig workers from employees. It is possible that the new rule could increase costs for companies such as Uber, Lyft, Instacart and DoorDash that depend on contract workers who pick up shifts at their own pace.

The companies have argued that flexible schedules appeal for workers, but certain labour experts as well as activists disagree that the firms use the contractor model to cut their costs, while denying workers crucial protections.
