Since the end of the Great Recession, the number of people who are working in "contingent" jobs has skyrocketed.
 
Today, it's one out of every five.
 
Uber drivers. Temps. Sub-contractors.
 
Women of color make up 60 percent of these contingent workers. They don't have unemployment insurance or company health benefits. They aren't even entitled to the minimum wage! And they don't have Workers' Compensation.
 
 
The Court has changed how companies like Uber - who claim not to have employees driving for them - must classify their workforce.
 
Labor experts predict that the Uber-like operations will try to ignore the Supreme Court, but change is coming. Millions of contingent workers are going to have what the rest of us have.
