This is good. Say what you like about unions (and yeah, there are some problems), but generally employees need to be able to work together like this or they're at an even more massive disadvantage compared to employers.

What's to stop this network of drivers from building a new version of uber that they collectively own, along with engineers and other worker-owners that could manage the tech side? The point of ridesharing companies is to find drivers for people that want them.
