Metaphore for Lyft and Uber

People need to wakeup and realise something
We are all working on a farm filled with migrant workers. These workers who work on these farms are willing to work for peanuts. Same with lyft and Uber. Our rates keep going down cuz there is a good percentage of drivers who will drive no matter how low it goes. Look around you people see all the uber and lyft drivers still willing to drive no matter how low they go. Or just look at the number of drivers out there when demand is at the lowest. We are but a bunch of none migrant workers in a sea of desperate farm workers

Wrong.
Rates getting lower because DRIVERS allow this from companies happy to exploit.
Again, U/L are not the problem. Shortsighted divers are looking at the 60.00 they make today rather than the 100.00+ tmrrw.

Secondly, 70% of drivers drive for both L/U. Therefor, if a strike is to be effective logging out of uber to drive for Lyft ....benefits Lyft who will do no surge & drivers still lose.

That's what I am saying. It's because of desperate drivers who will tolerate any pay.

And just like migrant workers a lot of these guys are scared shitless about being deactivated so they won't voice their frustrations or will strike

That is exactly why laws were enacted in this country pertaining to labor. Unfortunately we have turned into another banana republic in which anything goes. I have lived throughout the third world and that is one defining characteristic......the only law is there are no laws. It has been a sad two years in terms of US character leadership and companies such as Uber and Lyft personify that new character of this nation in terms of knowing the rules of law can be ignored, bought off, and as long as you know someone who has power you will be immune to any ramifications. Anyone investing in Uber and Lyft need to take a look at themselves and ask if the company really personifies what they stand for and what they think the US should stand for (being a US based company they are representative of this greed-based/unethical/immoral/corrupt) business model that is the new normal.
