AP Explains: Why are UK and EU still arguing over Brexit?

It’s more than four years since Britain voted to leave the European Union, and almost a year since Prime Minister Boris Johnson won an election by vowing to “get Brexit done.” As negotiators from the two sides hunker down for their final weeks of talks on an elusive trade agreement, Britain and the EU still don’t know whether they will begin 2021 with an organized partnership or a messy rivalry. “A deal is the likelier case now, but I wouldn’t be banking the house on it yet,” said trade expert...

Uber And Lyft Drivers Are Employees, California Court Says

The decision won’t have any immediate impact because it doesn’t take effect for at least 30 days, well after the Nov. 3 vote on Proposition 22. “Today’s decision comes on the same day that the fe...
