The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Driving uber and lyft has afforded me the luxury of starting my own business with the end goal of getting off disability, owning my own home and being financially independent. I hope to be able to get off of disability within the next 24 months, and buy land to begin building my home this year. Because of UBER I now have a new car after going without for 7yrs [REDACTED] I'm also a musician and this is affording me to be able to use the gifts God gave me [REDACTED]. It's a job where I can sit, and isn't physically demanding, I can set my own hours and take days off if and when I feel ill. I enjoy my work with Uber and Lyft - prior to being a driver, I was a rider and it's a wonderful way to transport yourself to where you need to go; very safe, clean and affordable! Please, let's keep this going - I believe it's VERY good for the economy!
