The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Uber is extremely important to me. It is the first job I have been able to find and work since I first moved to Florida in 2009. I am unable to work any job that requires physical labor/standing, I also have trouble sitting for long periods of time. Being a driver makes things easier for me, it gets me out of the house and introduces me to new people and new areas. Not being able to work for so long, and not being able to support myself for such a long period of time Uber is incredibly valuable to my life and my health. This truly is the only reliable form of income I have been able to achieve for the past six years, I really would be lost without it.
