Empty streets, empty economy: How Chula Vista businesses are fighting to stay afloat during lockdown

CHULA VISTA (KUSI) – San Diego County restaurants are trying to survive in these tough economic times. In fact, some restaurants in Chula Vista are doing special orders to go for Easter Sunday.

Many of the restaurant owners are thanking delivery companies like Postmates, GrubHub, Uber Eats, Doordash, etc. because without them, they wouldn’t be able to stay open.

That conversation opens another door into state law, AB5, written by Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez.

Could her bill hurt the people she was trying to help?

KUSI’s Dan Plante was at Third Street in Chula Vista with more information.
