Hola amiguitos, hoy domingo previo a la inauguración del AIFA, mejor conocido como central avionera veamos el costo aproximado de una ocurrencia más de @lopezobrador_.

El viernes dijo en su marranera que se pondría a disposición helicópteros como taxis aéreos saliendo desde Polanco a Santa Lucía para la gente con recursos, es decir, para los Fifís.
Esto no es tan sencillo y mucho menos una opción para el bolsillo de cualquier persona con sentido común y les explico:

Se ha hecho viral este video de un conductor de #cabify intentando acuchillar a otro conductor. Para los que se preguntan como es posible qué esto ocurra abro hilo...
Hoy aparece en prensa este titular #Cabify DA DE BAJA al conductor"... No le despide porque nunca le contrató. Esto tiene consecuencias graves para todos los usuarios de esta aplicación.
Si leemos las condiciones que aceptan los que se bajan la aplicación, veremos que #cabify les hace aceptar que les eximirá de cualquier cosa que haga el "tercero transportista", es decir, que tu contratas con Cabify pero luego no les puedes reclamar👇

🔴Coup de tonnerre, dans l’arène bruxelloise: la Commission🇪🇺 publie une proposition de directive imposant une présomption de salariat pour les travailleurs des plateformes numériques.
+ de 4 millions de travailleurs concernés!
Camouflet pour #Uber, #Deliveroo... et pour Macron⤵️
Une victoire enthousiasmante pour les travailleurs du monde uberisé. Jusque là considéré comme des indépendants via une utilisation frauduleuse de ce statut, @EU_Commission vient de présenter sa directive qui accouche d’un véritable bouleversement : la présomption de salariat. ⤵️
Cela signifie que les livreurs de repas, les conducteurs de VTC et l’ensemble des travailleurs ubérisés seront par défaut reconnus comme salariés.
✅Jusqu’à 4,1 millions de travailleurs en Europe qui auraient accès au salaire minimum, aux congés payés, à la protection sociale !⤵️

In 2019, the town of Innisfil in Ontario, Canada made the headlines: the municipality opted to replace public transit with the subsidized #Uber rides. Ellie Ruggles tells us how this unfortunate partnership has unfolded. 1/5 #platformeconomy
Like many other North-American towns, Innisfil struggles to accommodate the aging population and people who don't drive. After a series of public consultations, the city estimated the cost of a new bus at $272,000. Uber and local taxi companies asked some $100,000. 2/5
Uber was chosen as a contractor because they were cheaper, and had a platform that could accommodate more than 2 people per ride. Two years in, the city had to limit the number of rides monthly as the local budget was struggling to afford Uber's services at $800,000 ann-ly.3/5

/1 Thought of doing a thread on Akash $AKT, explaining why it could be a game-changer in the decentralised cloud computing space. @akashnet_ has leveraged blockchain to build a decentralised cloud hosting solution that seeks to disrupt the cloud computing industry. #AWS #Azure
/2 Akash is the first distributed peer-to-peer open cloud computing marketplace. Akash is a serverless computing platform. Think #Uber, think #AirBnb. Akash cuts out the middleman in a similar vein.
/3 Hence, Akash is positioned to disrupt giants in the industry such as #AWS, #Azure and #Google, much the same way Airbnb disrupted the lodging and vacation rental industry.

Micro curso sobre ventilación para reducir el riesgo de la Covid-19 en espacios cotidianos mal ventilados.

¿Qué tipo de ventilación tienen los espacios que visitas?🧵 1/7

#CovidCO2Mexico #covidestaenelaire #Celaya #regresoaclases
La ventilación debe ser: Cruzada(o chimenea), Continua y Distribuida para que todo el espacio esté bien ventilado. 2/7
#CovidCO2Mexico #covidestaenelaire #Celaya #regresoaclases
Los mini splits circulan el mismo aire; no permiten entrada de aire externo limpio para diluir el aire interno sucio. Abre ventanas y/o combina con purificadores de aire con filtros HEPA.

Otro tipo de purificadores generan compuestos dañinos para la salud. 3/7

Voce sabe o que a #AMZN, #UBER, #ABNB, #MELI, #FB, #TWTR, #RBLX, #ENJU3, #NINJ3 e Ifood tem em comum? O famoso Network Effect, ou em bom portugues, efeito rede.
A grosso modo o efeito rede significa que quanto mais consumidores tiver um produto ou serviço, maior será sua demanda, tanto de fornecedores quanto de usuários.
Ex: O que faz o whatsapp uma ferramenta tao interessante? O fato de que quase todo mundo usa! Quantos mais usuários vc tem, mais trafego se tem e por consequência mais usuários vc captura.

#Thread O que é #uberização? |
Se você acha que a “uberização" começou com a empresa Uber, precisa colar nesse fio e saber que esse fenômeno tem como objetivo nos transformar em trabalhadores #justintime. O que é isso? É você ser reduzido a um fator de produção. #Sigaofio 👇🏿🧵 Image
🧐A #uberização é a exploração da mão de obra por empresas que concentram o mercado mundial dos aplicativos e plataformas digitais. Ela tem como principal característica a ausência de responsabilidade ou obrigação com os chamados os prestadores de serviços. 👇🏿🧵
#Direitos | Em diferentes países, os trabalhadores por aplicativo se organizam contra a exploração e precarização do trabalho e lutam para ter reconhecido direitos como: salário mínimo e férias remuneradas. 👇🏿🧵

@Uber shame on you!!!
I had a bad enough morning yesterday dealing with an injury therefore unable to drive. I later ordered an Uber to get home from the doctors, driver was at the wrong pick up location, I kindly informed the driver of this. @threadreaderapp “unroll”
I then endured nasty comments via message as well as racist comments from the Uber Driver, whilst he was driving away from my location unwilling to cancel the trip, also trying call me on the phone, most likely to verbally abuse me! @threadreaderapp “unroll”
I was obviously upset, worried as the person had my home address and the fact he may have staked me online as my profile isn’t on the app.
Emotional and scared I TRY to contact someone at Uber, which isn’t that easy especially when upset. @threadreaderapp unroll

Some thoughts on #Uber's decision to implement *part* of the UK SC ruling and what this means in the wider context.

- The shift in language on employment rights vs flexibility is VERY significant even if Uber was careful to say this is 'unique' to the UK'...

1/

#gigeconomy
...Uber's position has always been about a trade-off between employment rights (even if limited under 'worker' status) & flexibility. This shift has implications beyond the UK.
- Will Uber use this play to campaign for IC+/3rd category elsewhere? That will prob not change.

2/
- 'Workers' are entitled to certain employment rights under English law. True to form Uber was selective in which ones they *mentioned* in their PR/SEC filing. More concerning is if/how they will grant those rights w/out a union or proper enforcement

3/

🚨After years of worker/union-led litigation, #Uber will classify their drivers (NOT riders) in the UK as 'workers' (min wage, holiday pay, union rights & more). Turning point for the #gigeconomy. Battle on definition of 'working time' ahead. Still, wow. ft.com/content/8d3947…
SEC Filing sets out further details 👇🏾
Holiday time based on 12.07% of earnings. Drivers automatically enrolled into a pension plan with contributions from Uber.

So you can have employment rights and flexibility after all!

And here is Dara's op-ed in the Evening Standard. We'll need to analyse what this means in detail, but today is undeniably a MASSIVE day for decent work in the #gigeconomy. Thinking of the drivers, claimants, unions, organisers & lawyers that got us here. standard.co.uk/comment/commen…

3/ The Commission will tomorrow launch a consultation on improving the working conditions in platform companies like #Uber, #Deliveroo or #Glovo.

I'm really excited for this Supreme Court Uber webinar with Laura Robinson and @timothygoodwin later, and there is still time to sign up.
If you can't make it, I'll be attending and tweeting out the highlights from 4pm.
#ukemplaw #uber #legalwebinar
And we're starting. @timothygoodwin says this case sends "tremors, not ripples" through employment law; and that it raises questions about whether Uber's business model is sustainable. #uberdecision #ukemplaw #legalwebinar
Laura Robinson (LR) is taking us through the decision. In summary:
1. Were Uber's drivers workers (and not independent contractors);
2. If they were workers - were they working whenever logged in, or just when driving?

The #Uber judgment is a good win for all drivers. It’s a massive loss for Uber’s fraudulent, tax-evasive business model.

But it’s also a big disappointment for the public interest, and enforcement of the universal right to a fair day’s wage for a fair day’s work.

Thread!😀1/
First, Uber’s prepared response indicates they don’t care. They immediately indicated that they may disrespect the judgment as much as they do their workers, arguing they’ve already made ‘changes’ and they’re going to ‘consult’ instead of paying holidays and a living wage. 2/
Second, Uber definitely lost.

But it’s at it again. Despite its statement, the app is the same. The UKSC didn't focus on a ‘small number of drivers’ from ‘2016’ but ruled on principles that apply to every Uber driver.

Fair pay and holidays are in the Universal Declaration. 3/

🚖 #Uber drivers are workers, the UK #SupremeCourt confirms. Major legal & labour market implications - let's take a detailed look at this landmark judgment (long-ish 🧵, the short take is here 👉 )
#Uber drivers are workers – entitled to the minimum wage (& other key employment rights) whenever they’re logged on. Lord Leggatt gives the powerful unanimous judgment of the court
The facts are well-known by now – but important to remember the sheer scale of this decisions: in 2016, @Uber employed over 30,000 drivers in London alone (40k across the UK).

#uber THREAD 1/ So, as we now know, the Supreme Court has ruled that #Uber drivers are workers & are entitled to pay whenever logged on & prepared to take a passenger. Here's the link to the judgment: supremecourt.uk/cases/docs/uks… #ukemplaw
2/ We all know the basic facts. There are 40,000 Uber drivers across the UK & 2 million people registered on the App (40,000 is a heck of a multiplier when working out the cost of this one!).
3/ Remember the key facts highlighting in the attachments below. They are crucial to the decision. They concentrate on the constraints placed on the driver - matters of subordination, dependency & limits on their ability to develop business opportunities from passengers.
