Regulation madness: Judge prevents Seattle from forcing Uber/Lyft drivers to join Teamsters union – TheBlaze

Regulation madness: Judge prevents Seattle from forcing Uber/Lyft drivers to join Teamsters union – TheBlaze:


"The Seattle ordinance is just the latest effort on the part of taxi drivers and the powerful unions that represent them to use the coercive power of state and local governments in an attempt to drive up costs for Uber and Lyft so that Taxis will face less price competition from ride-sharing companies. As always seems to happen in stories like this, the liberal local government doesn’t care if the consumer is forced to pay higher prices in order to advance their special interests’ agendas."
