I was checking out a new company app service with Uber continually going downhill. It's called HONK, basically it's for tow truck drivers. They offer Jump starts 3 gallons of gas Change a flat tire Towing Winching out of a ditch Locked out (keys inside) With winter coming, I was going to join and offer everything except towing or winch. I can do the rest quickly I'm handy, and have broken into more than a dozen locked cars. Here's the shocker, at the end of signing up as a service provider, I got to enter in what I would charge for each service, and HONK would add their service fee's onto that. That's what real "partners" or independent contractors should be doing, especially if we're NOT employees and get 1099's. Uber could change their business model and stay out of our lives!
