Although collective bargaining laws exclude independent contractors, we can still form a guild and protest, file law suits without lawyers, just paralegals, potentially strike and even create a network of truly self-employed drivers with driver app and broker to advertise, who takes a smaller percentage, defer more liability to driver with cheap group or individual insurance, and prevent death and destruction for a time bomb waiting to happen by eliminating Uber and Lyft's unreasonable rating system for something that saves lives and your car and educates riders about proper ride requesting with the repercussions of early cancellations. We can pay a small fee for guild dues and avoid greedy joint venture capitalists. except for the driver app unless we can order something open source. I will create a page for drivers only, where you can pay guild dues for unionization nationwide through the ballot (I will start a petition at care2) and/or pay for the development of a website and driver app with flagging and payment system, those who pay for the software and advertising will get a break on the percentage I take out for future drivers, you can decide on what percentage the brokerage gets, the higher it is, the higher the adjusted rating of the individual driver that will fuel more advertising to rival Uber and Lyft, and take away their market share. I have a list of 1700 radio stations I can contact for interviews, Uber is the hottest topic at talk radio.
