The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I worked in NYC 38 years in banking and brokerage operations. My company closed in 2012. I could not find a job. I had to sell my house in NY because I could not afford to pay my mortgage. I bought a house in Lakeland not far from my mother in law. I tried to find work but no one was hiring me. I signed up as a driver for UBER after a few weeks I began driving in October 2014. it has been a great experience driving and meeting and helping residents of Florida find affordable transportation. It also gives me an income which I truly need to live . I sincerely hope UBER stays in Tampa and in all of Florida. Warm Regards. Lou Cretella
