I was deemed 100% working disabled through the VA due to service connected issues. Without the gig economy, I would be forced to draw further assistance from state funded programs for the disabled. Being a veteran of foreign wars and a believer in what it means to be a citizen, I want to do anything to avoid that. Lyft and Uber primarily allow me to interact and communicate with people daily, talking about life, lending a friendly ear and listening to problems they may be having. These apps have allowed me to follow my passion, and I'm good at it. Anything I can do to help, I'm in.
