    I HATE Unions......anyone else ready to join?

    I have always considered Unions to be the scourge of the enterprising businessman/woman. However, Uber has somehow managed to skirt every regulation that would require a business person to pay a living wage. No one in any position of power seems willing to step up and force them to do the...

What could be effective is a charitable organization that mobilizes massive amounts of drivers to show up to fill sand bags, give blood, cook meals for displaced people or whatever else is needed. What I would like to propose...
