    I am sure the cab companies are smiling about this.
    I don’t get how people could sign up to be Uber or Lyft drivers and agree to a rate of pay along with conditions, and now they want to change the deal unilaterally, and courts entertain it. We’re a country run by lawyers.

    The Uber drivers I know (not many) aren’t interested in being employees. They want to be independent, but none of them are doing it as a full time job. They are supplementing their income.

      I also have some friends who were Uber drivers… they too loved being independent and did not want to be employees. They loved the supplemental income…. UNTIL, this past April when they all had to pay large (well, large for them personally) tax payment to Uncle Sam. Previous years they have always enjoyed a Tax Refund… but in 2015 they became Uber drivers and did not understand how that would affect their personal taxes. It is their own fault… but yet I suspect many Uber drivers do not consider all of the side affects.
