These idiots have screwed up a good thing for 1000s of people. Why I the world would you want Uber to make you am employee? Have they never worked for corporation in America - it sucks. That was the whole point, flexibility, that's why we do this. If you have to be an employee, and work a schedule, and have a boss who writes you up when you're late, then this is just another wage slave job, and not even a very good one. Why would you want that? I just don't understand, maybe someone can explain it....If you are hurting for cash, here's a secret : drive in a big city, Noone is hurting for cash where I live. But screw the money, how could you people do this, for the first time in the history of this country, regular people can work a job you don't even have to interview for and it comes with the flexibility of being your own boss, and you don't have to have hundreds of thousands of dollars to start your own business, you just drive your goddamn car. It WAS a revolution. NOW it's going to be just another shitty job. You people are horrible for doing this, ruining this for everyone. Don't any of you have a friend who could explain this to you, why this was such a good thing. I would love to hear someone justify screwing up every good thing about this for what, a minimum wage paycheck? You'll spend any settlement before the year is over, and then you'll just be a wage slave for corporate America. Oh my God, why????
