Matt, I agree but I think it’s even worse. The position of these companies is that workers get NO medical insurance, NO sick pay, NO overtime, NO minimum wage, NO cost reimbursement. The Uber driver pays ALL his own expenses, gets NO benefits at all and is guaranteed no hours of work. This is an employer’s dream. It turns employees into totally interchangeable and disposable tools. Welcome to the 19th Century. — David Grace
