It will probably go down like this: If the El Monte City Council dictates that their El Monte residents will be paid X amount of dollars to drive Uber, Uber will simply deactivate any Uber driver possessing a driver license with an El Monte address. Drivers who live in other nearby cities will service El Monte (unless El Monte outlaws Uber like the city of Austin once tried) but all El Monte license holders will still be blacked out from using the app anytime anywhere.Uber can geofence an area, but if they do not deactivate the drivers, they cannot geofence the drivers, so the drivers can go out of the geofenced area and go online. Do you think that is a possibility?
For the most part, probably not.... not enough stock-owning Uber drivers that are gonna change corporate hearts & minds anyway.Sorry I've edited my comment and you probably missed it - As a public company, as Uber is today, would you agree there is a possibility they could have shareholders residing in El Monte, possibly driving for Uber?
As far as holding stock, your interest is one of investing, and being a driver has nothing to do with it. People who own stock in McDonalds & Starbucks may know people who work there, but trust me they're not saying "gee, let's pay low-skill workers more than they're worth and drive the stock down further."
Anyway, I'm not sure where you're wanting to go with this.... perhaps you're ready to move from East LA or wherever your from and go plant roots next-door in El Monte to chase their $30 hr mythical unicorn who's eating greener grass and pie-in-the-sky because the El Monte council says so. I'm not wishing to demean anyone, but driving, especially Uber driving, is an extremely low-skill job that nearly anyone can do. If you really love driving and want to do it full time and make a living at it you might want to consider trucking which is in high demand, or do bus driving or para-transit driving or maybe deliver oxygen tanks to old people. It's better than full-time Ubering; you'll get med insurance & paid vacations and best of all you won't be driving your own vehicles into the ground. I wish you luck.
