Once you become an employee, your freedom is over!!... You will be geo-fenced into a fixed area, you will have set hours to work and your freedom is over!! ... once you're an employee, you have to ask permission to go to the bathroom, take a day off, if you can get a raise, if your kids sick and you need an extra day off you have to ask permission, do you have to ask permission to go home early, and who the is going to set the schedule for 900,000 drivers?........ $21 an hourX40 hours = $675.00 a week AFTER taxes ( and don't forget your fuel cost)... How the fuck are you going to live off that in the Bay Area ... I'm averaging $1,300.00 a week as a contractor... Leave me alone!!!!!!!!!!!
