Where do people here come down on Uber et. al.?

Great opportunity for thousands of part-timers, fair competition. Cool app!

Unfair competition to middle class professionals, subject to regulations and restrictions, trying to provide for their family. Another example of libertarian "race to the bottom" economics wherein technology is ahead of the law.

Woot! Woot! The DOL is taking my claim!

In May, I filed a complaint against my then employer on the grounds of unfair labor practices, namely, expecting its employees to work off the clock and be happy they have a job, ie, wage theft. It's pathetic that it's impossible to get your coworkers to come along. We all talk among ourselves about working evenings and on weekends, but their attitude is that of one who has Corporate Stockholm Syndrome and they side with the abuser.

Anyway, the DOL wrote me stating they'll be conducting an audit of this company.
