Richard Wolff is an Idiot
|I mean, really, look at this guy.|
I just watched a guy named Richard Wolff yell about Uber for 10 minutes. Can you imagine being a poor son of a bitch to be stuck in a lecture class with him? The worst part is he is a complete waste of time. I mean look at this guy, I've seen pornographic directors with more class.
This guy begins with false premises and therefore his conclusion is not valid. I'm not an Uber fan boy, but the fact of the matter is TL&C (Taxi, Limo, and Cab) insurance is regulated on a state to state basis. There is no federal mandate for cab companies to insure or cover their drivers. Most cab companies require a driver carry coverage, but the check of that is soley the responsibility of the driver. Ergo, you have a system that is no better, worse, or different than Uber in many states.
He also makes the brash assumption that Uber has "weaseled" its way into the TL&C service, and this could not be further from an false premise. Thirty years ago, taxi companies won the right to hire cab drivers as independent contractors, not employees. Drivers operate under the company's franchise, but they own their own cars, pay for their own insurance, and are responsible for their own actions. Therefore it was the actual TL&C lobby itself that created said loophole in many states. Nothing what this man says is valid.
His style is also one I do not care for. He has all the hallmarks of a bad teacher, tries to "reach" his students or bully his points by yelling. Can you imagine being in this boorish lecture's presence. Ultimately, nothing is valid in what this man says because his premises show little to no understanding how either arguments, lectures, or TL&Cs work. If I wanted to cherry pick an simple argument. Nobel Prize laureate Dr. John Nash and his wife were killed in a Taxi by a Taxi Driver. This man will never understand any qualifying term of that statement especially Nobel part ;)
