The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
My son Kelly... received his work schedule late one evening, had no way to get to work next day, as he is a musician, he has his instrument and stand and could not travel by public transportation, so Uber was available and at our fingertips. UBER saved him, his job and HIS opportunity to continue working." Uber is an asset, my son [REDACTED] could not call STS because he has to make a reservation the day before by 5pm...so Uber saved the day.
