    Communistifornica can’t understand entrepreneurship. Such a sad, sad state it is. It’s only goal is weaken people and keep them on the welfare wagon. Unions don’t have any business making me an employee. If they are so mad, get their own business like me.
    If I want to work 12 hours for Lyft or Uber or 6 hours a day for each one, that’s my choice. Lyft and Uber don’t tell me when, where or how long I want to work. I am the owner of my own operation. They simply provide a platform for me to join and earn money or not.

      LOL apparently you don’t understand capitalism, because when you have a business in this country with employees you are required to pay taxes on it. Uber and Lyft have been trying to skate around the definition of “independent contractor” for years, but they have always been on the opposite side of the law.

      What exactly weakens people when it comes to offering them healthcare, sick leave and other benefits? Yeah, they offer you a platform, and after taxes you make pennies on the dollar. I’ve actually had to sue a company that was wrongly treating me as an independent contractor, have you? Uber and Lyft have been breaking the law. If you don’t like it? Tough.

      Calling it the “welfare wagon” is a joke. Do you actually work for Uber or Lyft, or are you just another senile boomer who wants to yell about things they don’t actually understand? Nevermind, I think I know.
