Comment from Robert Wolpo

In regards to this proposed rule change, I do not see how I could be a “employee” of Uber when they have absolutely no say so as to when I give rides or deliver food to people through their app. They do have standards for vehicles to use as a driver, but I think of that as a dress code. If I want to make more money, I have the option of working longer, only limited already established Hours of Service by the DOT.

I am a caregiver that needs the maximum amount of flexibility in my work schedule and if I were to suddenly be categorized as “employee”, I am sure that I would not have a job with Uber or any other gig type of work that would give me the flexibilty that I need. Just look at what happened in California when they made that change and how many lives have been upended and possibly destroyed out of “good intentions” of the government
