So... do you want to be more regulated, or do you want to be treated like an employee? If regulated, meaning the government steps in and says who can and can't be a driver, having maximums, etc. that means much less drivers on the road but it also means increased taxes and fees for whatever you're doing, probably special certification, etc. If you look at Uber's in NYC, they are already going through this as their cars are about as regulated as the cab industry there. For exactly the same reason - too many cars were on the road, causing too much traffic and not being a benefit to anyone. If treated like an employee, where uber says they are only going to hire x number of people and no more, and you'll have to wait for one to leave to hire another, etc. that means working the shifts they tell you, at the places they tell you, not having the ability to decline rides, etc. This is what many taxi drivers deal with and me personally, I have no interest in that. It's why I uber and why I don't drive a cab.
