Fair enough. Some people can definitely smell.
Not sure if it’s (BO’s) the same kind that lingers though. Wet dog hair has a distinct smell that doesn’t go away easily.
No idea on your skunk and marijuana comment. Sorry!
They can smell on rainy days unfortunately.
Segio, that's you!!
You and Dave..both from professions that have nothing to do with rideshares. I love it.
"Good bad and ugly", baby.
UberEvents is just another evil marketing scheme by Uber, designed to confuse and suck money from the consumers.
Becoming an employee will give us many rights including pay and protection.
We can also restrict Uber from hiring too many drivers and saturating the market.
"While we expect only a small number of riders to ultimately be impacted by ratings-based deactivations, it's the right thing to do."
Right... see? We knew Uber won't really do anything about bad riders. Revenue is the most important. Nothing has changed
We are talking about hourly wages. Other industries like waiters are protected by minimum pay, so why shouldn't drivers be?
Remember the days when we had NO IDEA EVER when a trip would be long? Oh, those were the days.
Drive 20 minutes and you get a 2 mile ride. That stung worse than driving 18 minutes and getting your ride cancelled.
I enjoyed reading the article but this is a hype article on a hyped event.
Users had no problems getting rides on Wednesday. Airports were full of Ubers and in all the cities listed, drivers were showing up in 3 minutes.
I even heard that there were MORE riders on the streets, because they thought they can get better surges and make more money.
Sure. I will participate. We have flexible days and hours. Why not? Even if it is a small blip on Uber’s radar, it still is a blip
It’ll be hard to resist if many drivers strike and there are surges all over the place...
Is this for real.
I never even thought of the privacy thing. I suppose there are other reasons than not being 18 to not share the ID. Ha!
Honestly, if you asked for an ID and they either lie or cannot produce proof, I feel like the liability falls back on them. Hence if anything were to happen, we'd be protected.
No, I really don't care.
How are you mad? Half of my passengers are on the phone. Are you mad 50% of the time while you are on your shift?
It’s good when I’m busy. I like those quick trips. Lots and lots of them
Look at how much suckier pool got. Like it wasn’t bad enough.
No wonder they didn't want employees. Now they get to keep all the stocks to themselves at corporate. Dividing up billions of dollars among the few in the ivory tower.
Good ol' NY Post. None of these points make any sense. Plus none of it is informative.
"Without partition, you can talk to your passenger." What am I supposed to do with that info.
Any law firm reaching out to you are scammers. They may be a real law firm, but you know they are all in it to make a buck.
dunno. just pay us more, please. i dont care.
I had to look it up. some start-up that provides financial tools for people in gig economy. so I assume they have apps for uber drivers. you know to manage finances.
manage all that money we dont have.
"You are just an Uber driver."
anything that requires me to break traffic laws.
Gosh, so many holier than thou drivers here, claiming "they would be happy to wait." Why can't we be honest? I absolutely hate waiting around and I know many other drivers do too.
I get whopping $0.15 a minute and that's before Uber takes its 25% cut. (Maybe it's better in other cities.) That's like $6 an hour, lower than minimum wage. I hear other drivers saying it's better than not having a passenger, but it sucks compared to when we are driving a passenger.
We get paid the most while driving and the vehicle moving. On a busy night, this kils productivity and earnings. If I sat around all night waiting for people picking up their dates, I wouldn't be able to earn a living.
Please just complete the trip and order another one. That isn't that hard, right? Booking fee is like $2 to $3.
