    The app IS working.

    This app is simply designed to alert drivers to collective actions in thier (profile) set areas. The numbers (of drivers) are just not there yet. Use the (app) forums to suggest a collective action in your area. It can then be coordinated from there and if there are other drivers in your area who run the app or registerd with the RSDU website they will all receive a message pop on thier phone (or via email if they dont have the app installed) about the collective action about to take place in thier area with instructions and more information.

    Personally I don't want to be a W2 employee. I prefer being a contractor and all the advantages associated with that. I'd rather Uber respect our contractor nature more and be more hands-off than to be more hands-on and make us into employees.

    If you guys who want to be W2 employees get your way you'll probably also need to work assigned shifts. In otherwords, you'll be taxi drivers for a different cab company. I don't want assigned shifts.

    If you do not stand up for yourself, nobody will. Keep on being a slave.

    And people will be like "Then why do you do it? Stop driving for them if you don't like it!"

    What do you think promoting it on social media will do? People want their cheap rides.

    Cheap rides was the great innovation that made Uber popular in the first place.

    Otherwise, people would still be taking taxis.

    Too many part time drivers by Ubers design. Part time drivers have much less skin in the game, and won't pay union dues for support of a union leadership council. I don't like union bosses but, would consider support of an elected "union council" made up of "veteran" "honest" ride share drivers ONLY. They would have to have their own financial house in order and would have a cap on their compensation.

    A guild. Members would pay dues based on their average monthly time on the app, on a rolling six-month basis. It's just "cloud talk" right now, though.

    We have a global rideshare network already by the People on Facebook that is larger than that of Uber. The entire service industry in the USA is available to use on Facebook (AID, AIR, ART..). Look for The Hive / Swarm City. Decentralized. Disintermediate #deleteuber #deletethemall
