The primary reason I began to drive on this platform since 2012 was because I was tired of all the politics and bureaucracy that is attached to with being an employee. I'm born and raised in San Francisco and I've been here 40 years. By far- Uber has been the best way to earn money with its Untouchable ability to have flexible hours. I really hope that lawmakers can realize that we, Independent Uber drivers, are human and want to enjoy life while still meeting our financial responsibilities without the hassle and stress of being an employee. Cheers!
