This loses my support when they start using images of fists and the word "fight". I've been in real battles. This ain't one.

Thank you for your service. I use to think the same way. But do you know what I found out? The real battle for most of us is living from paycheck to paycheck. Or having a medical condition that does not qualify for coverage....We never got extensive training on how to survive under heavy fire. Or how to kill those that are suppressing us. So please, how can you extrapolate the knowledge you have learned and share it with us here?

It's overly dramatic on the militant imagery, too much for my taste, but I don't think that should define the worthiness of the group (although I have my other issues with them, which I'll keep to myself).

First, his battle could have been a personal one against disease. Second, I've seen it all, Uber is Hitler, our plight equals military action, Chicago is really a Chi-Raq war zone and that we are all supposedly nothing but a bunch of ants!! What will our creative minds think of next?!!

My point exactly. None of us know what battles he is talking about...You can call them what you want. People have battles ( struggles) their whole life. Others perceive them as just everyday occurrences that they adjust to on the fly.

Some people take ubers adjustments on the fly and adjust accordingly. While others have restrictions that limit their ability. For whatever reason.

You calling Chicago a war zone is just your opinion...It speaks for itself.

The raised fist was first used in the late 1800s and early 1900 S in the battle for workers rights. I'd say it's very apropos here.

Any effort large enough to force uber / lyft to consider drivers interests in their decision making will not please all of us all the time. But if it can have impact on the overlords and force a real seat at the table for drivers maybe we should give the effort a chance.

The term "fight" or "battle" is figurative, for sure. But no less appropriate, in my opinion.
