The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I receive a low retirement check. Working with Uber has improved my and my family's financial situation. As a senior, it is physically not easy for me to work on a regular 8-hour job, for this reason, I had to quit my former job. The flexible work hours at Uber make it possible for me to have an extra income and not to be a public burden to the State of Florida, (as receiving food stamps, etc). Florida is one of the poor States of the Union. Thanks to my work with Uber, I and my family are above the poverty level.
