If you Don’t like Uber’s arrangement, that you are an independent contractor, then here’s an idea. DONT DRIVE FOR THEM.

I’m confused, they don’t have to work for the company if they don’t want to, right? And if they do they make up their own hours right? I thought Uber was like a part time thing for most?

I had a laugh hearing about this. Those going on strike are only screwing themselves while the remaining drivers will rake in the higher rates. I just can't believe so many people are this ignorant.

What exactly are they protesting? That they get to work as much as they want?
