I was reading the site www.uberlawsuit.com and I was wondering; do people really want to be classified as employees (i.e. paid slaves) or would you rather be a plantation owner (i.e. "independent" contractor). I have to admit, we are technically working as slaves under the guise of a plantation owner. If we were truly independent contractors as Uber states, we would be able to set our own driving rates and also get paid tips and other things in the so-called contract would be negotiable. However, we are obviously getting played. I am for a hybrid model. Maybe create a whole new employment category. More like "Dependent Contractor" with benefits from both sides of the fence so-to-speak. Any thoughts?
