A road rally at the State Capitol on Tuesday produced dozens of Uber and Lyft drivers. They gathered to drive home a point — they want to remain independent contractors behind the wheel. “You can control your hours,” said Roy Hawke, an Uber and Lyft driver from Sacramento. “If you’re an employee, you don’t set those hours. And, if things change up, things might not work out for me and I might not have Uber and Lyft as my income.”
