If the courts can deem Uber drivers NOT to be contractors. Then first off, that calls into question ALL taxi services since most drivers lease their cars/taxi permit from the owner.
But more so, what does this decision say for ALL of us IT folks? Hundreds of thousands of whom are hired as contractors.
This decision will pretty much shake up all the Silicon Valley corps if left to stand. Once the courts realize how much big $$$ money they jeopardized, they'll recant this decision.
And frankly, I think Uber more than almost all contractors, is clearly a contracting service.
