    Organized Drivers in Seattle?

    I met the Teamster's Union rep for ABDA last week but left feeling that that was more hope in self-organizing. What's been tried here and why hasn't it worked? It should be obvious to everyone that market power resides in the collective of the drivers, who own the means of production...ie...

    New Uber app won't let you see other uber drivers not nearby...

    Hey guys, the new uber rider app only shows drivers near your GPS location... That keeps us from finding a lower competition area for a better chance of a ride. Uber keeps taking away info.
