Attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan is based in Boston but she's lately been in a couple of Federal Courtrooms in San Francisco opening up a potential can of worms (or possibly whup ass) for the Silicon Valley high tech bullshit rappers who run Uber, Lyft and other so called "sharing economy" exploitation rackets. It's really pretty simple. Uber, Lyft and companies that provide services like house cleaning, claim not to be employers and that their workers aren't employees but are independent contractors, not even contracted with the companies that cut their paychecks, set their prices, assign them jobs, rate their performance and can suspend or even fire them.
Uber and Lyft claim that their critics are Luddites who are trying to halt the tide of technology. As one of those critics I disagree. I am fighting super exploitation of the drivers and reckless abandon concerning the dangers of distracted driving caused by driver apps.
Uber drivers strike in Florida, say they don't make enough money to maintain a car.
