D&S researcher Alex Rosenblat and Luke Stark’s work in researching Uber’s treatment of its drivers was reviewed and discussed in this piece by The Awl.

But perhaps the most interesting part of this study, and one that should be interesting even to ideological opponents who might be tempted to dismiss this research outright, is the outline it draws of Uber contractors’ attempts to take back power, either through crude organization or individual data collection. It surveys driver experiences as gathered from interviews but also from the numerous Uber driver forums, which together have thousands of members and display, in general, an oppositional attitude toward the company.
