Where do you draw the line when everyone is driving as an independent contractor? 5? 10? 20? 30? a week? It doesn't matter how many hours people are working, drivers are complaining because they aren't paid enough on an hourly basis.
Time to lower the driver pay. Just in time for the IPO!
Like an insurance policy?
So if I pay this amount, I can be big jerks to customers and I'd still have 5 stars? I don't have the urge to be a jerk, so I don't see the value in it.
On second though...I can also be bulletproof to real nasty riders and those who we all know will leave you bad ratings. This will also buy me the freedom to defend myself against and speak back at horrific riders. Ok, that may be worth something
Technically, any circumstances. We are not required to take anyone. We are independent contractors and no one can tell us what to do. (though, maybe not in CA anymore.)
I am not sure even if race, gender and religion can stop us from cherry picking rides.
I wasn't planning to work on Wednesday anyways, but I do make a point to not drive that day. I want to see what happens. It always feels good to stick it to the big guy.
Aren't they all pretty much on-demand already? Don't you just go to craigslist or something and you just call when you want them. "call girl"
I am sure there are apps for it.
LOL. Six stars!
Is that right? It takes that many?
Haaa Haa Haaa!!! Sorry, I know you went through a real crappy time but this is hilarious. I hope you can laugh about it now that it's over
He must be suffering from the case of "no clock icon."
That's awesome. Kudos to them. I see more and more car washes starting to offer discounts for Uber drivers.
Those little compliments go a long way. :)
Lyft is all talk. They offer so many "perks" and "benefits", but they are always on trial basis and to limited drivers. I am sure they are great for those receiving them, but THIS is the reason I think it's all a publicity stunt.

They are the ones who claim they called the LA strike yesterday.
Drivers no longer even see multipliers, you know. I think this is one of those things the passengers have no idea about. The world has been turned upside down for drivers, but the world blissfully keep on going.
Not to mention the risk you are taking by being on the road in a treacherous conditions.
The driver's vehicles are private properties. They are not public transportation like buses and taxis.
The expectation of privacy needs to be thrown out. The drivers can record what happens in their private cars, and if they don't like, they can step out.
We are independent contractor. I find it infuriating that Uber is trying to dictate what we can and cannot do in our own cars.
So much for the commitment to provide reliable service. Do they really close at 8:30PM? I can't imagine that to be true.
Yeah, I think that's what the OP is asking for, right. Pretty much? Riders are rating the experience while as the drivers end up being solely responsible for their experience.
If Uber overcharges or the surge angers the passengers, oops, it's the drivers' fault. Fantastic.
As of September of 2018, it's against Uber's policies to post pictures or videos of passengers. So the drivers cannot do this anymore. (Yes, it's a bit controversial as the cars are theirs and they should be able to record. Can they post? I guess that's the remaining question.)
Uber and Lyft confirm drivers can’t broadcast videos of passengers after a string of privacy incidents
