Many politicians argue that drivers for ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft who are currently considered independent contractors should be reclassified as employees. Lyft co-founder John Zimmer is open to another way, a new category of employment that would resolve the debate.
"It could make sense to have a third way," Zimmer told CNBC on Tuesday.
"Right now, to us, it's pretty clear where these individuals fall," Zimmer said. "We're excited to be part of the future of work. ... A dialogue about a third way is fine with us."
