The annual Limousine Association of New Jersey fundraiser has long served as a role model for industry togetherness.
This partnership's efforts will specifically focus on the lapses in legal protections that have proliferated as the nation's ground transportation industry evolves.
Both organizations share the belief men and women are entitled to a voice in their workplaces, and the economy and their wellbeing is intrinsically connected to the country's economic wellbeing. However, within today's ground transportation industry, as the profit model has changed and new technology has come into play, working people have become an ancillary concern.
"In a society that increasingly values convenience over safety and responsibility, it is the obligation of the NLA to raise awareness about how ride-hailing services, for financial gain, are circumventing fair labor laws and are not adhering to the same safety standards and regulations that are often applicable to taxis and limousines," said Gary Buffo, President of the NLA.
"Our partnership with Jobs With Justice is a vital step towards bringing these urgent matters to the forefront of conversation here in the United States. Ride-hailing services are misleading passengers, exploiting drivers, and putting our economy at risk."
"Americans are united in the desire to work hard for our families and futures," said Jobs With Justice Executive Director Sarita Gupta. "Unfortunately, many ride-hailing services rig the rules to prevent working people from leading a good life. When ride-hailing firms misclassify employees as independent contractors, they avoid taking responsibility for the safety and security of the people who make their businesses run. Our partnership with the National Limousine Association's Ride Responsibly initiative will help shed light on how transportation networking companies undermine drivers, consumers, and our communities."
