    This is an extremely disappointing decision by the EDD.

    However, Uber has not exhausted all possible appeal possibilities for this case. Furthermore this ruling does not set a precedent and it only affects a single driver.

    I got to page three before Scribd and my Galaxy phone cockblocked me.

    This is huge.
    Yet another branch of California government deems Uber an employer.
    Winning!

    [​IMG]@glados you really are naive .... you spout spin and bull**** from a "theoretical" or textbook viewpoint.

    You make broad sweeping statements without backing them up with real life experience as a. UBER X Driver... the only reference point i have read that you have ever given is Uber Web sites, Uber financed surveys, and general Uber propaganda.... and yet when others post counter opinions and use media surveys ...you dismiss them as biased and weighted to give the desired outcome. ...

    You , young lady, are akin to a religious zealot that quotes extracts from doctrine "as if it is fact" ....

    Just ask a Scientologist, or a Moonie, or a Jim Jones devotee, or a Westboro Baptist Hate Church member.....they all have something in common with you ... blind, misguded faith in "the word of the leader"
