If I work as a contractor through a management company and turn down projects, they're going to start paying someone else who actually wants to do the work.
And if I don't have the proper tools for the jobs, I don't get the jobs.
A 2 door car is not sufficient because the passenger is trapped until the driver lets them out.
A beat up junker isn't sufficient because passengers expect a car that will make it to the destination.
There's a very huge difference between not being available during certain hours and selectively saying "nope" to passengers.
The whole point is that taxis operate at excessive costs and poor quality precisely because of a playing field that is stupid.
Uber is playing on an entirely different field.
And if you don't want to play on it, you can go be a taxi driver.
It's completely ignorant to demand companies play on the "same playing field" when the whole point is to escape the existing one.
You're not an employee of Uber. You're a contractor. You set your own hours. If you don't like the terms, find another job.
If you like the terms of being a taxi driver better, be a taxi driver.
