Comment from Paul Short

As an Uber driver, 1099 is by far the best classification. I am also a REALTOR which is 1099. What this means to me is I’m my on boss and I set my hour, if the terms of the contract does not suit me I can negotiate new terms with another service. Do not take the flexibility that I have with Uber, if another ride share company wants to use a W-2 model that is the companies choice and should be respected but Uber has chosen a legitimate 1099 model that works for me. If the law is changed then to W2 only, I’ll have to find another part time 1099 job. I enjoy working for Uber using the 1099 model and believe that model should not be changed. Than you for letting me express my opinion on this matter!
