I'm pretty pro-labor, but this is preposterous.
But the Commission argued that Uber's involvement in "every aspect of the operation," including handing down specific parameters for the tools the drivers use and terminating their access to the platform if their user ratings fall too low, represents an employer-appropriate level of control. Furthermore, it said, without drivers like Berwick, there would be no Uber.
This EXACT argument could be applied to people that sell on Amazon or Ebay. Are they employees of the company?
If this argument forms the basis of this ruling, these judges need to go back to primary school and brush up on their critical thinking.
