The busy streets of Accra are filled with a harsh discordant mixture of sounds. Among these sounds are the daily unceasing mundane horn honking from the Trotro and taxis. For most people in Accra, these unending daily honking from the drivers are unnecessary noise, but some Trotro & taxi drivers found it interesting enough to create harmonious music out of them. In 1968, a group of drivers from the La Drivers Union came together create music from the horn honking with self made instruments like the honk horns that have a rubber squeeze bulb at one end and are either straight or curved, bells and drums. Drivers used to hang them off their side mirrors. They called this new genre of music “Por Por.” The Por Por became popular somewhere around 2007 when an album “Por Por: The Honk Horn Music of Ghana” was produced by Professor Steven Feld (an “anthropologist of sound”) to celebrate Ghana at 50. Before that, Por Por was usually performed at occasions like weddings and funerals of drivers. Professor Steven Feld in an interview published by npr in March 2007 said "The idea is kind of like a New Orleans jazz funeral: a real rejoice-when-you-die kind of party, where you are sent up by a honking of horns.” On their performance at the funerals, he stated that “The drivers' road to heaven paved with car horns and a whole lot of honking.” . .

After ten years behind the wheel, Terrence Dewberry is used to every squeak and metallic clank from the Number 7 bus. On Friday morning, his bus pulls out of the downtown   @goraleighnc   station at 5:45 a.m. with just three passengers aboard. An hour later, it will return with more than twenty riders, on their way to work or school or home from an overnight shift. ⠀ ⠀ At fifty-six, Dewberry had grown accustomed to a consistent schedule, and he liked not working weekends, a benefit of his seniority. But now that’s gone. He works weekends. His shifts start at different times. His sleep schedule’s a mess. ⠀ ⠀ Why? Because, the   #DriversUnion   says, GoRaleigh's management company—  #Transdev   Services Inc.—has stripped their benefits and retaliated when employees voiced their concerns. 📷: Bob Karp

Uber drivers in the US, UK, Brazil and beyond are striking over salaries and working conditions at the ride-hailing app. The drivers will withhold their services and log out of the app for several hours Wednesday. Companies like Uber, Careem and Deliveroo—which hire freelancers and contractors rather than full-time staff, and pay them by task rather than time—constitute the “gig economy”. Supporters argue its flexible, no-strings model provides swift remuneration, and more control and freedom than traditional contracts. But critics claim “zero-hour contracts” exploit workers, stripping workers of sick pay, minimum wages, or cancellation compensation. Drivers’ unions worldwide deplore Uber’s slashes to pay and "perks": the latter lured drivers in; the former forced them to undertake 60-hour weeks or sleep in their cars to get by. Although Uber claims to operate at a loss, it is seeking an $80-100 billion valuation ahead of its initial public offering (IPO), due this Friday on the New York Stock Exchange. Gig companies are notoriously resistant to unionisation. However, the Conversation noted Uber’s reluctance may be fuelled by studies suggesting unionisation, long-term, damages publicly-traded firms’ equity value. Is the gig economy’s aversion to collective action motivated by fears that functioning unions—by successfully advocating for improved conditions—could cut into margins? What place for collective bargaining in the gig economy? 📸: Getty • • •   #ThinkLogically     #LogicallyDailies     #LogicallyDebates     #wednesday     #uber     #uberuk     #uberus     #uberbrazil     #uk     #britain     #america     #us     #brazil     #uberstrikes     #uberstrike     #strike     #uberapp     #careem     #deliveroo     #gigeconomy     #exploitation     #sickpay     #minimumpay     #driversunion     #newyorkstockexchange     #nyc     #newyork

I suppose you can't really blame taxis for portraying Uber and Lyft as the enemy. In 2011, before Uber entered the New York market, there were 13,587 yellow cabs in the city of 8.5 million people. The number of cabs in New York has been capped since 1937, after a Depression-era glut made it impossible to make a living as a taxi driver. The mechanism the city used to restrict cabs was a medallion that one had to buy to own a cab. Because there were so few cabs for so many people, the law of supply and demand kicked in, driving up the price of medallions. According to the New York Times, the value of a medallion topped out at $1.3 million in 2014. Today, according to Bloomberg, there are an astonishing 80,000 "app-based transportation vehicles," driving around New York City. If 13,587 cabs were too few, then it's fair to say that the current 100,000-plus cars-for-hire are too many. The price of a medallion has dropped as low as $130,000. Taxicab operators who thought their medallion would finance their retirement are now drowning in debt. Cabbies — many of whom lease their cabs from medallion owners — can no longer make their lease payments because their business has dwindled. And there is one other downside: All those app-based cars have slowed down traffic in New York by 23 percent since 2010, costing the city an estimated $34 billion a year. On the other hand, is it really fair to blame everything on Uber and Lyft? I would argue that before throwing rocks at the competition, the New York taxi industry would do well to take a long, hard look in the mirror. Like internet stocks in the late 1990s, and real estate in 2005 and 2006, medallions were a bubble that was bound to burst. Uber and Lyft mainly provided the pins that popped it.   #driversunion     #taxi     #change     #lyft     #uber     #taxicab     #uberpromo     #lyftpromo     #lyftcoupon     #lyftcouponcode     #lyftpromotioncode     #lyftcredit     #lyftdiscount     #nycphoto     #taxiride     #taxirides    #cabride     #cabrides     #nyctaxi    #taxidriver     #taxidrivers
