They can strike all they want but that doesn't mean that other drivers won't keep working to advantage of being able to charge more due to less drivers. This is how a free economy works, don't like your job then find a new one and if your employer can't find anyone to do the job for a certain price then they will be forced to raise their employees wages. But until that happens no one is forcing these people to have a job as an Uber driver.
but we can all agree that society is better when some limits and minimum standards are put on free reign capitalism, right? Are we really pushing to go back to the early Industrial age and have 9-year-olds working in factories?
We've seen less restricted capitalism before and it was worse off for the average person. Let's not pretend like child labor laws, the 40-hour work week and overtime pay laws have made things worse.
So , clearly, answering everything with 'free market, free market!' is not the answer.
