Are Lyft and Uber Drivers Being Taken For a Ride?

With the ever increasing slew of apps that are being created and put into use each day, anyone armed with a smartphone has round the clock endless services at their disposal. Hopeless romantics can browse local singles through apps like Tinder and Happn. Hungry college students can have beer and chicken wings delivered to their dorm at 4 am using apps like Postmates and Spoonrocket. People in new cities without transportation, or others who might have had too much to drink to drive home can get a ride from virtually anywhere using the rideshare apps Uber and Lyft. These rideshare apps are arguably the most prominent and necessary apps on the market. The notable advantages of these apps as opposed to taking taxis are; they're cheaper, they're available at all times, all payments are electronic, and users have a choice of driver based on their ratings. Seemingly the only bug these apps haven't figured out is how they should treat their drivers. And, because of this, both companies have had to redirect their focus from iphones in the streets, to briefs in the courtroom.

From Chat Rooms to Courtrooms: Social Media's Role in Class-Action Lawsuits

As little as two decades ago, people were faced with a sense of isolation when dealing with defective products and/or seemingly careless and irresponsible businesses. There was no real way of knowing if others had similar negative experiences other than months and months of research, or waiting around long enough for the problem to transpire globally through word of mouth. Though, the problem with information traveling that way is like the children's game, "Telephone." A simple comment could morph and slowly become unrecognizable as it was passed from ear to ear. Today, a class-action lawsuit can build momentum in a matter of seconds, as a virtual community has the ability to Tweet, Facebook, Instagram, and Yelp themselves into one cohesive electrical unit capable of hurting any company's reputation faster than you can say, "Hashtag."
