Abe Husein, the organizer of this strike, is not a nice person. I don't advocate ANY violence, damage to vehicles or income.

FOLKS - ORGANIZING IS FINE. BUT IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE A LOCAL EFFORT! What is important in San Francisco may not be important in Dallas or Atlanta or New York. Dallas was successful because Uber CHANGED the RULES that the Black drivers signed up for. It was a local issue, and the local effort was recognized and corrected.

PLEASE go to UberMan's YouTube page UberLou posted above for more info about Abe Husein and a RATIONAL response to this effort.

I have no problem whatsoever with and support the strike.. If done correctly it will really get the point across.
I do not think its right to get the fake phones and placing fake calls to other drivers.
I see nothing but problems and bad karma coming from that..
(and to me in my advanced age, I find the fake phones and ride orders to seem very childish and such)

UberLou a video by Randy Shear, aka UberMan, the ultimate referral code peddler, is not a legitimate reason for Drivers not to participate in #UberSTRIKE! UberMan makes untold thousands of $$ recruiting & referring New Drivers to sign-up for Uber.

Let's put the strike issue completely aside for just a minute and consider what Uber Man is saying in his video. Almost immediately he attacks the organizer. To me, that is an instant red flag. The person organizing the strike has no bearing on the objectives of the strike. The objectives of the strike benefit everyone, including Uber and riders. If the rates go up there will be more drivers. More drivers mean that the existing demand can be met. If the existing demand is met, that means there are more completed rides. More rides equals more revenue for Uber.

Uber Man's ad hominem attacks are nothing but logical fallacies made in an attempt to make drivers believe they should not support the strike. Support the strike because of the objectives. The issue of the person organizing the strike is irrelevant.

It also means more drivers sitting on their butts doing NOTHING when 2000 cars are out there for no riders because they've all been picked up. Uber makes more, but drivers don't. There is a fine line that it looks like no one wants to approach logically. Again, there is a time honored way of dealing with this: Organize locally then strike. Don't strike to bring people together. It's like a bad relationship started by an emotional event. May have worked for Spiderman, but not for most real humans (yes, there are some lovely stories out there, and I would love to hear them).

What your saying is the Uber should only be for drivers desperate enough to work for nothing. This makes no sense. If drivers can make money there will certainly be more of them. At first, this might mean more wait time for drivers, but it will eventually create business. People requesting Ubers will be able to get them, and this will cause the business to grow.

Abe Hussein (UberFreedom) is the legitimate reason not to participate in this strike. He has his own interests; he does not care about anyone but himself. He just wants the attention. Another person should take the reins and lead this, not him. I don't care if it is Randy saying it or not, nobody knows who this guys is but are willing to follow him. Time to regroup Chi.

I agree with change but not now, not this way.

More to come about this "guy" that no one knows anything about yet is willing to follow.
"This Guy" is Abe Husein. He runs the Uber Freedom page on FB. He was deactivated by Uber for trying to organize Drivers locally in Kansas City Missouri, and nationally through his Uber Freedom FB Page.

Abe Husein also has an open NLRB Case against Uber.

Abe Husein is just a guy who got the ball rolling on #UberSTRIKE. It's the buy-in from Drivers themselves that will either make or break the #UberSTRIKE.

Uber Man also claims that the strike organizer wanted striking drivers to throw rocks at drivers who were working.

This could be true, but it makes no sense. If a striking driver requested a ride and the driver showed up they would get charged if more than 5 minutes passed. What driver is going to be stupid enough to do this? Making requests and then cancelling is one thing, but making requests and getting charged for it is another.

"This Guys" is a joke. I think ultimately people are smart enough to figure this out on their own.

Uberman is a superhero. His superpower is the ability to take an idea that can be explained in a few words and stretch it out to 9 minutes. This video proves you CAN make money driving for Uber...as a paid shill.
The first two sentences earned you my "like', Sirrah. My laugh of the day and oh, so true.

As to the last sentence, what makes you so sure that Uber pays its shills? If some of the things that I both know and suspect about Uber are true, I m ight venture that Uber does not even pay its shills.

I don't know that Uber pays its shills. I need to clarify that. My post was satire, and I don't have any proof he gets paid by Uber.

Abe didn't know that at first, people had to tell him that on his page. He fought it, told us all we were dumb. Once he realized that people would be charged he deleted his posts with all the threats and went another direct. His first guidance was to damage property until he realized it wouldn't work.

See I have been following UberFreedom for several months, I have seen the way he was before the strike and I see the way he has changed for the strike. He is fake and disingenuous. In my opinion not really all that intelligent.
