Hi Jose, Thank you for sharing your Uber story with us a few months ago. We've read through hundreds of replies to our survey and yours was one of the responses that really made an impact on us - it's partners like you who make our jobs so rewarding. I apologize for the short notice, but it would be incredibly powerful if you shared your story with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) *right now*. They're holding a workshop on the sharing economy, and the comment period closes TODAY. Please head over to the FTC's website and fill out the form with YOUR story about what Uber means to you! TELL THE FTC YOUR STORY If you don't remember what you wrote us, here it is: "I am sixty four years old, Prior to Uber I had applied to a minimum of one hundred jobs. None which ever even responded why I was not able to work for them. Uber is the best thing that has happened to me in years. I am now able to pay my bills on time again.I am no longer afraid to loose my home because lack of income. Retirement pension alone does not allow this tranquility. Uber is the desired company of all riders that I have spoke with and is the most flexible and family oriented company in today world today. Thank you Uber for bettering my family live. Jose Alea "
