Gig work companies like Uber and Doordash are committed to misclassifying their workers as contractors, which lets them escape employer obligations like a minimum wage, health care or worker's comp (driving for Uber/Lyft is one of the most dangerous jobs in America). 1/ EFF's Competition banner, depicting a below-the-neck image o
These companies spent $225m to pass California's #Prop22, a ballot initiative that formalized worker misclassification, paving the way for all kinds of companies to convert employees to contractors at the stroke of a pen:

Hilariously, all that money was wasted. Prop 22 was unconstitutional. It usurped the assembly's constitutional duty to establish universal worker's comp. It was (idiotically) drafted such that if any clause was struck the whole thing was invalid.

As we all wake up to this outrage happening in #Tennessee I would like to inform you that #California , #Washington #Wyoming #NewMexico ##oklaed #Mississippi #WestVirginia #michigan #Massachusetts have no specified minimum age to marry after exceptions. Child married is an issue
Across the #Unitedstates it happens in every community, culture and religion ALL ethnicities. I am begging you to please take this opportunity to learn about and help to #EndChildMarriage not only in #Tennessee but in every state. I would like to never have to stand in a room
Full of strangers and painfully share about my experiences of being married at 15 to my 43 year old abuser and plead with legislators to close this dangerous loophole that ensnares 1000s of children each year.

High levels of an #infection in #Massachusetts is causing both gastrointestinal (#diarrhoea, #vomiting) & respiratory (#cough, #sinus, #headache) symptoms WITHOUT typical fever or runny nose - School children & parents/guardians across #boston suburbs affected for last 3 weeks.
Note the CDC data suggests very little SARS-CoV-2 (Omicron) or influenza (flu) at this time in Massachusetts or Connecticut or New Hampshire. So diagnostic tests being used are not catching this circulating pathogen, or a seasonal coronavirus/norovirus/adenovirus is the culprit
According to the data on SARS-CoV-2-positive PCR tests there is very low levels of COVID-19 over last 3 weeks in Massachusetts, CT, NH, RI & VT. Yet there are several #school #children, #teachers and #parents with gastrointestinal & respiratory #infection symptoms in these states Image

Wednesday's #Covid19 megathread makes an early start as there's so much news to bring you!

#Omicron takes centre stage in Europe with a raft of records (recap coming up), but #UK ministers are increasingly confident the NHS won't be swamped despite England's lack of restrictions
It turned out to be a terrible Tuesday, not just in #UK, which was just one of TEN European countries to hit all time high daily #Covid19 infection numbers.

#Cyprus #France #Greece #Iceland #Italy #Malta #Montenegro #Portugal and #Spain the others to set new records.
Concern in #Norway. The #Omicron wave looked to be beyond the peak; is it making a comeback or is it still delayed Christmas cases?
4,702 new #Covid19 infections, fewer than 100 down on last Weds.

Better health data. 315 in hospital, down 13 since y'day, although 120 are in ICU

Heute Zahlen, die aussagekräftiger sind als aktuelle #Inzidenz.
Im Thread🧵:
*Neue #Omikron Statistik vom @rki_de (rki.de/DE/Content/Inf…)
*Kinder: Hospitalisierung&ITS
*Impfen

Inzwischen meldet #RKI 4 statt 1 #OmikronTote:
3 zwischen 60-79 Jahre,
1 Verstorbene 35-59 Jahre
2/
#Omikron Verteilung auf #Altersgruppen umgerechnet auf die Anzahl der Personen zeigt Schwerpunkt bei 15-34 Jährigen:
Während Anteil an Inzidenz(*) bei Gesamtbevölkerung erst bei knapp 13 liegt, ist sie dort mit gut 26 doppelt so hoch.
(*: Nicht wochenweise, sondern Gesamt)
3/
Bezieht man die #Omikron #Hospitalisierungen auf die Einwohnerzahlen, so sind fast alle Altersgruppen bisher gleich betroffen,
außer: 80+ mehr als doppelt so oft (trotz geringster Fälle),
5-14 Jahre mit < 1/3 am wenigsten, (trotz 2t häufigster Fälle)

This is the start of the daily #Covid19 thread for Tuesday.

So despite big increases in cases and hospitalisations, no further restrictions for #England. How bad will the data be today? We'll find out later and I'll update and analyse all the data worldwide as often as possible:
Boris has urged you all to be cautious in the packed bars and nightclubs on New Year's Eve, so that's ok then!

First to South America where #Argentina has just topped 20,000 new #Covid19 cases in a day for the first time since July.

20,263 is the daily total, up 280% compared with the week before.
31 deaths.

Monday's #Covid19 thread starts here. Still holidays around the world for many, including #UK. But here all eyes on Boris Johnson - will he, or won't he make more restrictions or even lockdown? We should know today.

I've got more hospital data in the thread, updated real time..
So let me start with #UK. I've managed to get new health data, which will be critical to the decision on new restrictions in #England

As of y'day there were 7,536 #Covid19 patients in English hospitals; up 17.1% in a week.

But 2,425 of those are in London and that's up 45.5%
Strangely, South-East & South-West areas of #England have fewer #Covid19 patients in hospital.

Occupied hospital beds by region (weekly change):

#London 2,425 +46%
#Midlands 1,345 +17%
#East 681 +16%
#NorthWest 945 +8%
#Yorkshire/NE 847 +3%
#SouthEast 803 -2%
#SouthWest 490 -5%

Mike and Erica DeCelle, as well as their daughters Kylie and Mikayla, all tested positive for the virus last week.

Per Fox affiliate WFXT, Mike and Mikayla were not vaccinated, while Kylie, 14, and Erica were.
"We all tested positive.... and then like over the course of like two days, my dad and sister got really sick," the teen told the outlet. "It got to the point where they weren't eating or drinking or anything. So, they both had to go to the hospital."

To generate electricity for NECEC, Hydro-Quebec will use 61 dams and 28 reservoirs that have flooded and destroyed tens of thousands of square miles of boreal forests, wetlands, and taiga.

Hydropower destroys rivers and forests, violates Indigenous rights, and harms the climate.
Most of the dams are built on the ancestral lands of Indigenous Peoples in Canada without their consent and without compensation. The Innu, Atikamekw, and Anishinabek First Nations in Quebec oppose NECEC and are suing Hydro-Quebec for violations of their constitutional rights.
