The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
Before Uber, I used to work 2 jobs. My full time job which is overnight 11pm-7am, Sunday through Thursday plus my part time job 3pm-11pm, Friday - Saturday. I was still struggling to support my family needs. I have a wife and a son, financially I am the engine of the household. I used to pay late fees all the time on my rent, my car insurance policy used to be canceled back to back, I can't even count how many times that I received final notice on my light bill. But 2 weeks after signing up with Uber, it was a totally different story. I am making right now 2 times more in a single week than what I used to make on my previous part time job biweekly. I realized that it was a waste of time working that 32 hours . Uber has been a life saver for my family and I. Please don't take it away from us. If there is a way that you can settle things down to satisfy both parties, please do, otherwise you will have millions of families going back to the same old same old, specially me. Regards, Thanks *Uber, Is a life saver, For riders And drivers*"
