In the interest in full transparency here, I know a few of you may say there are better opportunities, there's not much that can be done, or simply taking 'reflect' on driving habits. However, we see deactivation filling the different corners of the said internet that is becoming concerning. Having bad riders are as that of a circus full of clowns; more crazier than the other.

False accusations could happen to any of us. Even a dash cam couldn't help you in most cases. Hopefully that's not a new scam coming around for people looking for free rides. Passengers would probably get a refund or retaliate when they're aren't pleased.

With that said, what implementing ideas should I include in the petition with the on going common issues via driving for Uber/Lyft? (will be edited from time to time)

So far, we have:

  • False accusatory claims (heresy)
  • Deactivation due to offline time frame
  • Deactivation due to % of cancelation
  • Shady questionable firing policy
  • Deactivation due to expressing opinions against said company
  • Questionable policy of "independent contractor" rather being fired as an employee
Deactivation can leave drivers stranded without a source of income and no legal recourse to fight the termination. Without a clear policy of what makes a fireable offense, drivers are left to solve it alone or by sharing their warnings and deactivation stories on forums, blogs, or other. Pointing to the obvious, when there more questions than answers to their shady "strict privacy policy" it merely pulls out a complete coincidence when appealing or questioning for said questionable firing.

The ability to fire at will is an important factor in showing a company's workers are employees, not independent contractors - Shannon Liss-Riordan

I think a petition is needed but in order to have an effect thousands will need to sign.
The petition should be to change the law about arbitration agreements so there can be a class action. As individuals drivers can't afford to pursue arbitration and a lawyer wouldn't touch a single driver case without substantial upfront payment. It should go to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
Ubers arbitration agreement prevents drivers from having their "day in court"
 
So makeup a fake name, no one checks or knows anyway.

A petition can definitely help if the number gets large enough the media could cover.

  • False accusatory claims (heresy)
  • --> no way to prove they are false, case by case basis
  • Deactivation due to offline time frame
  • --> I have never heard anyone complain about this, ever
  • Deactivation due to % of cancelation
  • --> a California court has ruled that this is a legitimate reason to deactivate drivers
  • Shady questionable firing policy
  • --> according to the ToS that we all signed, they do NOT need to give a reason to deactivate anyone
  • Deactivation due to expressing opinions against said company
  • --> that would be called "harming the brand" and courts have affirmed that this is a legitimate reason to deactivate drivers
  • Questionable policy of "independent contractor" rather being fired as an employee
  • --> there are already 700+ lawsuits and claims of this nature in existence

Petition Ride Austin to set up or expand as a national or global ridesharing model is a faster and cheaper approach to the wrongful deactivation.
ANYTHING is better than change.org
They are enemies of the United States, and enemies of freedom loving people everywhere.

What petition host would you feel would be more ideal?
Man, I know you're from Chicago, and youse folks do things a little different there. You spawned Obama. Rod Blogodovich, Rham Emanuel, Jerimiah Wright and a few other cop killers and criminals. I prolly can't overcome the indoctrination you've endured in this post. And, this isnt the right place for it anyway.
Good luck with your hobby.
