I met a guy who is employed as an organizer to form a UNION at Oakland international Airport. I don't know who is behind this but I like the idea of forming UNION. He told me that he was just now organizing for SF Area. May be there will be other assigned organizers for the whole CA State.

What's the purpose of a union? To launder money to elect crooked politicians. No thanks, just say NO to Communism.
At least, Drivers could have a power to fight back on false accusation and deactivation. To keep the job and hopefully to raise per minutes rate.
What is so bad about communism? When you are rich and you pay people to do your work, you don't want Communism. When you are not rich, get paid for the exchange for your efforts, powerless to fight injustice in your work environment, and Communism is good in a play.

Let's not confuse communism for capitalism.

A union of independent contractors is an unlawful monopoly or cartel.

This does not appear to come from the Supreme Court, hence it is opened to challenges. Whether or not someone will take the time, energy, or financial reasoning, is up in the air.

This is why Bernie has a chance at election; people don't understand what Communism, "Medicare for all" or Socialist Democrat even mean.

Just what we need, union dues: more money taken out of our already meager pay.
Unless we get upgraded to employees and the unions set the rates. That is why people are trying to fight this in some states. It really takes only one state to get involved in this, change ICs classification, and the rest may fall.

In a socialist state, the workers exist to serve the state, the ruling class. A Statist government sees as their mission to control every aspect of your life as they believe that YOU are not smart enough to manage your own affairs. Are you smart enough to manage your own affairs?

Communism doesn't lift everyone up, it flattens everyone down, impoverishes everybody, save for the ruling class which is constantly eating itself for survival. Communism ignores the reality that men are sinners in a sin cursed world and endeavors to create a utopia by deceit and then by force of perfection. All those who stand in the way of this goal are destroyed.

If you are a reader, find out what it's really like:

The Dream We Lost - Fred Utley
Witness - Whittaker Chambers
Out of the Night - Jan Valtin

There are others, hundreds of others, the last one mentioned I recommend first, it should have been a movie as its thrilling.

Do you even know what communism is?
Absolutely! Frontwards and backwards. Been studying and experiencing its horrors for over thirty years.

Exactly, but there is a process and the courts move so slow. It took them 15 years to figure out same sex marriage and 89 years to figure out segregation in schools.
Because that’s not the courts job.

In California uber drivers have been classified as employees and not independent contractors.

I know, I know Uber is saying otherwise.
