So say the Kalifornia lefties who are trying to wreck Uber. Now the courts are beginning to cave to leftie pressure by saying that Uber drivers must be considered employees rather than independent contractors. This has been a ploy used by organized labor, big government, and crony capitalists for a long time.
Uber dares to disrupt the cozy taxicab incest between government and taxi corporations, which has worked to limit competition and insure so-so service for decades.
Good job, you Kalifornia lefties. Free choice for consumers? Screw that, right? Free choice for drivers? Screw that too. Conform! March in line! Pay whatever the bureaucrats decree for a ride or a job.
Why do lefties fear freedom so much? Because with freedom comes a loss of their power.
