    I read some drivers have joined a Class Action Suit, siting they want to be "Employees". So they get reemberrsed for, gas, maintnance, get unemployment and such. You want to be an "EMPLOYEE"...? Go back to flippin' burgers for 8 bucks and hour...and, see how that works for you. Oh, and if you wanna MAKE MORE...start sooner, and leave later. I'm gettin' PAAAAAIIIIIDD!!! Uber on.

    Most supporters of class action work in a devalued market.
    Nice that it works for you, allow the liberty of your compatriots to work for THEM.

    BubbaArmyUberBubbaArmyUber I'm overwhelmed by how under informed you are on the issues involved.
    Please spend some time reading up on the Issue before you post more nonsense based on fear and ignorance.

    “Even if Uber loses this case, it will be free to restructure its relationship with its drivers in such a way that the drivers would actually be bona fide independent contractors,” Chen wrote in a 68-page decision.

  5. Still trying to figure on how they think they'd get unemployment though. Even if a driver was terminated odds are they did something that was detrimental to the job which on any case would disallow them from recieving benefits all together. Now if a driver was let go do to performance then Uber would then have the defense of the "so called training class" to assist the driver on improving there rating or what not. I understand where these people are coming from but there points make absolutely no frickin sense. Now the gas factor. Cabs don't get reimbursed for there gas, Uber drivers aren't Cab drivers, Uber has provided no company vehicle that earns the driver a right to get reimbursed for any kind of expense used. I'm with Bubba Uber on and shut the hell up.

    LA Uber Driver Got Unemployment Benefits

    That is based on the degree of control exercised over the Drivers:

    CA Labor Commissioner awards Uber Driver $4k in business expenses. Uber Appeals in Court.

    This fight is simply about the Degree of Control that Uber's exercises over all aspects of Drivers' Operations. Uber classifies Drivers as ICs, but it treats them as Employees.

    Ongoing Poll | Do Uber & Lyft Exercise ExcessiveControl Over IC Drivers.

    As Judge Chen wrote,“Even if Uber loses this case, it will be free to restructure its relationship with its drivers in such a way that the drivers would actually be bona fide independent contractors”.

    Problem solved!
