Fall, Memes, and New York: U B UBR BUSINESS NY TO RAISE DRIVER PAY July 3 New York City regulators are moving to raise wages for Uber drivers and drivers on other ridesharing apps. New York City regulators are moving to raise wages for drivers on Uber and other ride-hailing apps. This decision makes New York the first major American city to put pay rules in place for the ride-hailing companies. The proposal intends to bring drivers’ pay in line with New York’s $15- hour minimum wage. ___ The Taxi and Limousine Commission released a study addressing the issue at hand: Uber drivers and drivers for other ride sharing companies are underpaid, and 85% of them do not make over minimum wage. The study states : “[the drivers’] low pay has persisted despite the rapid growth of the industry.” ___ The study explains that if a ride-hailing app driver’s earnings fall below $17.22-hour over the course of a week, the companies have to make up the difference. The study suggests companies can afford to absorb this cost by lowering their commissions (about an average of 10-25% of passenger fares). The study reveals the median net hourly earnings in the ride-hailing app industry is about $14.25. ___ The New York pay rules would apply to the four major car service apps: Uber, Lyft, Via and Juno. These four ride-hailing apps provide more than 10,000 trips each day in New York. ___ Alix Anfang, a spokeswoman for Uber, said the proposal could hurt “riders through substantially increased prices and reduced service.” ____ The Taxi and Limousine Commission’s study did not address yellow cab drivers.

Forget raising the minimum wage. This is much much better idea.</p> <p>The minimum wage could actually drop if we had basic income.</p> <p>But Americans would never go for it. Miserably slogging through 12 hour days and having businesses open 24/7 is too engrained in our culture.</p> </blockquote> <p>“BUT WHERE WILL THE GOVERNMENT GET THE MONEY?” screamed Joe Schmoe, slamming a meaty fist onto the table and getting mouth-froth all over the front of his greying tank top. “You libt*rds all think money grows on TREES!! HAHA!”<br/><br/>“But where will people get the incentive to work?!” Mindy Bindy cried, flapping her hands in front of her face. She’d had a fear of the unemployed lollygagging about ever since she was a child and her mother told her to be afraid of the unemployed lollygagging about. “You think people should get paid for <em>nothing</em>? I work <em>hard</em> for my money!”</p> <p>“But who will serve me?” grumbled Marty McMoneybags. “Who will make me feel important? Who will do my laundry and cook my food and stand in front of me wearing a plastic smile while I take out all my stress—because I <em>do </em>have a lot of stress, you know, being this rich is <em>stressful</em>—on them?” He paused and straightened out the piles of hundred dollar bills on the desk in front of him, then raised his two watery, outraged eyes up to the Heavens. “Lord, if there are no poor people, how will I know that I’m <em>rich</em>??”</p> </blockquote> <p>I laughed. This is perfect! Well said!</p> </blockquote> <p>The thing is, while I’m sure you could scrape up a few people who’d be willing to just float by on a guaranteed minimum income? For most people the choice to work would be a no-brainer. “Hmmm. I can get by on 33k a year, or I can take that part time job and make 48k… enough to move to a better apartment, maybe take the family on vacation. Sold.” Hell, most people would want to work simply because it gives one a sense of dignity and something to do with one’s time. (Speaking as someone who’s been unemployed, on extended sick leave, etc. in her time, the boredom and sense of isolation that comes with not having a job is almost as bad as the humiliation of having to depend on other people for one’s survival.)</p> <p>And with this system, part-time jobs and “non-skilled” jobs would be much more readily available because nobody would need to work two or three jobs just to stay afloat!</p> <p>Which would ALSO mean that employers and customers couldn’t shamelessly exploit employees the way they can today, because if losing a job weren’t necessarily a financial disaster, more people would be willing to walk out on jobs where they weren’t being treated with dignity.</p> <p>And if this also applies to students (and it should) then student loans would become much less of a problem, and fewer people would flunk out of school because of having to juggle studies and work.</p> <p>Far fewer people would be forced to stay with abusive partners, parents or roommates because they couldn’t afford to move out.</p> <p>And the thing is, all those people who suddenly had money? They’d be spending it. They’d be getting all the stuff they can’t afford now - new clothes, books, toys, locally-produced food, car repairs - and with each purchase money would flow BACK to the government, because VAT, also income tax.</p> <p>The unemployed and/or disabled wouldn’t need special support any more - which would also mean the government could fire however many admins who are currently engaged in humiliating - *cough* making sure those people aren’t getting money they don’t deserve. Same for medical benefits and pensions. And I’m no legal scholar, but I somehow imagine less financial desperation would lead to less petty crime, and hence less need for police and security everywhere?</p> <p>TL;DR Doomie thinks this is a good idea, laughs at those who protest.</p> </blockquote> <p>reblogging for more top commentary</p> </blockquote> <p><strong>They tried something like this out in Canada as a sort of social experiment, called Mincome. What they found was that, on the whole, people continued to work about as much as they did before. Only new mothers and teenagers worked substantially less hours. </strong></p> <p><strong>But wait, there’s more. Because parents were spending just a little more time at home and involved with their families, test scores increased. Because teens didn’t have to work to support their families, drop-out rates decreased. Crime rates, hospital visits, psychiatric hospitalizations and domestic abuse rates all dropped, as well. More adults pursued higher education. Those who continued to work reported more job flexibility and more opportunity to choose employment they preferred.</strong></p> <p><strong>Basically, now you can go prove to your asshole family members that society won’t collapse without poor people for you to feel better than.</strong></p> </blockquote> <p>*muffled sound of conservatives imploding in the distance*</p> </blockquote> <p style=""> I’ve reblogged this every time it’s come around but I’ve never seen the results of the Swiss election that the graphic reports.

Arguing, Tumblr, and American: IF THE MINIMUM WAGE WAS REALLY "NEVER MEANT TO BE A LIVING WAGE, THEN WHY DID FDR, THE PRESIDENT WHO SIGNED IT INTO LAW IN 1938, SAY: "No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country By living wages, I mean more than the bare subsistence level I mean the wages of a decent living Franklin D.

I don’t really think he should be your yardstick for human decency.</p><p>Second, I have never seen the goalposts move so often as they do when people are defining what constitutes a “living wage“. Labor is a commodity, and it’s one of the only commodities that people argue should have a fixed price regardless of its actual worth. If I told you that apples should always be at least $10 no matter what, you would laugh at me. But all labor is worth $15 an hour?</p>
