All in an effort to Unionize them and Put those Union dues right back into the very politicians pockets that pass this. UBER & LYFT are going to die fast in California.

Great news.

Liberal companies can experience liberal policies.

I love when that happens.

He didn’t say “have”. He said “experience”. Details matter.

GOOD!!!

They are liberal companies pretending to be progressives while actually being full-blown vulture capitalists. That CEO of UBER owes every bit of his $6B to his lack of conscience.

Their profit model will be completely screwed up. Why do you think they were trying to get drivers out of said model before anyone could figure it out? Those drivers rarely make minimum wage. HUH, the progressive lie at work again.



I hope they tank as investors run for the doors.

Once those drivers become employees, those companies get to start paying for all sorts of things.

How much paid maternity leave do you believe should be legally mandated?

That is really good!! How could the drivers not be thought of as employees? Now, they will be entitled to things they deserve like health insurance, 401K matching, maternity leave, etc. like a regular employee working for a company. I remember when one or both of the companies went public and they were celebrating and so happy they were all going to get rich, but the drivers were left on the outside and would get nothing from it. The drivers are the ones that have to do the hard job of ferrying passengers safely and sometimes dealing with dangerous traffic situations. They don't get paid a lot to compensate them for the risks they sometimes encounter.

They don't have a profit model. They don't, in fact, have profits. Uber had an operating loss of $5.2 billion (that's with a "b") in Q2 - that is, 3 months.

The way I see it, when I use a ride service, I get a ride, the driver is paid, the company employees are paid, and some venture capitalist somewhere takes it in the shorts. The 0.1%ers are directly and voluntarily subsidizing my drunk rearside getting home from the pub. Fine by me, for as long as it lasts.

The VC's model semed to be an overinflated value with a million day traders thinking they can quit their full-time gig once they cash out and bro down. In that scenario, the VC still gets theirs.

My startup is actually designed to be profitable. Hopefully, it will be some day; otherwise, I might becone a liberal and require others to support me.

Except that the company can easily manipulate the number of rides that a particular driver gets, to make sure that he or she always falls below whatever threshold there is for receiving benefits.
