Uber Drivers In New York Form Labor Association

Am I the only person that heard this in their head when I read this article? I really shouldn't make jokes about this situation because, if you hear the drivers tell it, they are getting the short end of the stick.

"Since Uber management controls the fares charged for the service, drivers want and need security and protection," the association said in a statement. "Uber financiers are forcing drivers to work long hours without any benefits or labor law protections." Drivers are struggling to make car payments, maintain their vehicles and still have enough money left over to support their families, said Kevin Lynch, co-chair of the association. "It shows that people are really hurting," he said.
