Independent Driver
For me, this job has always been a supplementary position in addition to my regular career. A way to pay for rising costs, particularly healthcare in California. The fact that it’s very convenient to turn the app on and off without any ride quotas to do this job on your time is absolutely priceless. There is money to be made and it’s a great way to interact with the community and get people to and from safely. I do not intend to continue as an employee if I don’t have those same flexibilities. It wouldn’t fit into my schedule at all if I’m told when and where I’d be driving each day. Not only will this decision hurt majority of drivers, but it would also be a huge disservice to consumers as well. If this were to kill the rideshare business, you’d see a major increase in DUIs and alcohol related crashes. Think long and hard about this one.
