Holy shit, this is bad. I support all who decide to #BoycottUber, though I'm not sure it has much impact on anyone other than workers trying to get by in the gig economy.

The more expensive traditional taxi is a better model but also unaffordable to many in our cruel economy.
In other words, there are a lot of catch-22's here for people struggling to survive. In addition, most Uber cars I've seen recently also have Lyft stickers on them. So, what do you do with that? If you feel the need to use one of these services, you're effectively using both.
I mean, I guess it's all the same to the driver, more or less? And maybe you'd rather the profit-sharing go to Lyft, and while the whole thing isn't great and there's no ethical consumption under capitalism, that's I suppose marginally better.
But a lot of people can't stop using at least one of these services for the same reasons that a lot of people can't stop shopping at Wal-Mart.
