“In its filing, Uber cast itself as having made adjustments to its model to give its drivers in California, whom it regards as independent contractors, even more autonomy, including letting them set their own fares and see a rider’s pickup and drop-off locations before they accept requests.” This is what it takes for Uber to let drivers set their own rates — a threat of having to hire them. One thing is clear, Uber will continue to violate the Sherman Act until it is literally forced into submission.
