Based upon Ramallah v. Uber Technologies, (Eastern District of Pennsylvania, April 11, 2018) there is no need for such a law because the 2nd Court of Appeals has ruled that all the laws and ordinances currently exist that permit Uber to play less than the minimum wage (or no wage at all). Your Uber driver has no protection under standard labor law. That means: no brakes, no guarantee to a lunch break, no overtime, no sick days, to entitlement to the tip you gave him, no minimum wage.). This ruling pretty much came out and said it was unfazed. Driver’s car are essential to Uber selling pizza. They sit waiting for a call for any transaction to take place. But having many of the characteristics of being an employee, they don’t carry enough weight to be protected from unsafe conditions, or greedy owners. The drivers attempted to from a worker’s union, but Uber insisted they were merely subcontractors. The Gig industry is so excited. More and more money, less than no responsibilities.
The Judge apologized for having to fall back on 1938 Federal Law but no worker protection laws have been written to cover the new age we live in.
This proposed law is just a deduction of our 30s depression codes.
How about a law to protect workers.? That would be novel. The proposed law is 100% pure greed at it’s vilest
