Trump to Uber: You’re Welcome

My husband drives for uber and Lyft. There are positive aspects to it that are all mentioned above but there are other issues that are not accounted for and it’s primarily in the lack of “antiquated” labor protections. As Uber continues to dominate the rideshare industry, riders will eventually have to rely on the good will of the company if they expect to be paid. They can’t complain because they are not technically employed by uber and could theoretically stop at any time. The fact that there is such a need for this type of work, especially by people who have degrees and should be working in the skilled labor force, should be alarming in and of itself but we should definitely be vigilant if this administration plans on pushing any agenda to further remove labor protections.
