The "Sharing" Economy: Issues Facing Platforms, Participants, and Regulators A Federal Trade Commission Workshop
I do think that Uber does exploit the definition of contractor and the 1099 wages may be mis-classified. By definition, independent contractors shall be able to set their own prices but while driving for Uber I have no control over price at all. I even have no control on how much the commission Uber will take it out from the trip fare. Uber enjoys the truly independence and freedom in setting up the price and its greedy commission. Driver are not.
