After You #DeleteUber, Get a Co-op

Uber’s recent “strikebreaking” during New York protests against Trump’s anti-immigrant policies is nothing new. It’s only the latest feat of bad behavior for a company whose business model is built on sidestepping basic rights that workers have fought for for centuries. But Uber’s disruption has paved the way for a new generation of worker controlled taxi alternatives, alongside older ones. Here are examples from the Internet of Ownership directory for filling the missing spot in your smartphone. Some are co-ops, some share equity with drivers, some are union shops, some are managed by democratic municipalities, and some are just interesting concepts in development. Contribute and spread!
