If Uber raises prices 50% in California, will you still use them?

Judge orders Uber/Lyft to reclassify drivers as employees.  While we think this will be good for drivers [they might make a living doing it, instead of barely more than breaking even], there is no doubt it will cost more, much more.  Since Uber doesn't actually make money, it is plain that fares would have to rise substantially.  50% is my guess ... so if that Uber ride across town costs 50 percent more than now, will you still use them?  [of course, this is just until they have driverless cars in 5 to 10 years -- then fares will plunge again.]

    Don't worry about it, your mommy will probably just drive you to the playground and the ice cream store anyway.

    Uber has already said that unless AB5 is overturned or a carveout provided that it will cease operations in California. Hello, more DUIs and alcohol related car accidents.
