1) it would be a full time job for the organizer
2) it would take money and dues
3) no one wants to join with dues because we have no faith in doing so

i wish someone can pull it off.

Do you hack in D.C. or the suburbs? If in D.C. and you have been out here any length of time, you know what happened when people tried to organise the drivers. We have had two different unions try to organise us. The only real show of unity ever was when the battle against His Exalted Supremacy, Adri-Amin Felonty and his meters set to 1989 cab rates, already had been lost.

As Uber and Lyft drivers ain't nothin' but no unlicenced, illegal, underinformed, underinsured, cut rate, discount tack-see drivers, it is no surprise that the efforts to organise them have met with about as much success as those to organise the cab drivers.

How do you really feel?

Welcome to the forum. One of the reasons is that so few drivers communicate. Another is, there seems to be a mistrust of anyone making an effort toward organizing. There is also a high turnover.
