OMG that video... LOL. I love that black car that nails the pedestrian... and THEN STOPS. Good effort there buddy!
That's assault, and he ought to be charged for it, if they knew who he was.
But I hate to say it that kind of behavior comes with the territory. Someone in another thread was saying we should all have those plastic shields installed in our cars like taxis have in big cities. Doesn't seem like that bad of an idea when you see behavior like this.
Uber’s charismatic CEO Dara Khosrowshahi wouldn’t oppose the idea of sharing some of his $3 million salary plus $40 million worth of equity with Uber’s minimum wage-earning drivers. He just wouldn’t give the order himself.
When asked about thoughts on the widening pay gap between top executives at “gig economy” tech companies like Uber and their low-paid contractors at an event this week, Khosrowshahi acknowledged that things have “gone too far,” but argued that it should be governments’ and society’s job to fix it.
That's.... not how leadership works, Dara. That's cowardice, not leadership.
"How do you like working for Uber?"
I used to get this question more often, but sometimes people (who I assume are new to Uber) still ask it. The answer is awkward because I used to like driving for Uber more when they paid decently. These days I wonder if it is even worth it. But if I say that, it sounds like I'm groveling for a tip. So I just say "Yeah it's ok" and hope there are no follow up questions.
🤣 politics and religion. Really should not be brought up these days unless someone is looking for a fight. Another thing is when they slam the door when they get out of the car like they are trying to keep the demons of Hades from escaping the back seat. Just chill.
Yeah for a decent hourly rate I'll wait all day if I have to.
So you're basically hiring a date, amiright? I hear that gets expensive...
Yeah shouldn't be a problem.
Kind of an interesting move on lyfts part. Def don't like it but like you said people in smaller markets should love it.
I was also surprised by the stat on 91% of drivers being <20 hrs/wk. Would have guessed maybe 50-60%.
Umm... Maybe you're gonna get busy... Not me. Delivery is not a way to make a living.
But Tom Brady sucks, why would they want to be associated with him?
Edit: oops meant to reply to the guy above
Yah there is definitely more than alcohol going on here. That girl needs help.
The whole idea of Lyft and Uber X in the beginning was that it was just normal people making use of their cars in off hours to make a little extra cash. If they turn us all into employees that spirit is gone forever. Of course maybe it already is.
Service dogs are the all-stars of domestic animals. Amazingly well trained. Unfortunately there has been a proliferation lately of "emotional support animals" which are not trained at all in most cases and I think that has given all service animals a bad name. (Wrongly)
Interesting... I wonder why. Doesn't really make sense
It will depend on the market. In a lot of places I think higher rates would be sustainable immediately. So they will probably inch up there quickly. Maybe some places not so much.
This would be amazing. Uber and Lyft would be forced to raise rates. And so be it. People have been getting their rides subsidized on the backs of drivers for this long. They can pay more.
In your article you say:
States are losing a lot of revenue by not collecting taxes due to all gig economy workers being labeled IC (Independent Contractor).
Don't ICs have to pay taxes just the same as employees? Is the problem that they are underreporting income?
Lyft seems to be cracking down hard on all these apps. Notice that they are gray on rideguru fare estimates now instead of pink. On the bellhop app they don't even use lyfts name in the logo anymore. Probably gave these guys legal trouble is my guess. Very lame.
So much for Lyft being the good guys.
Driver here. Uber cars are technically supposed to be smoke-free. But like brownbear said, even if that rule was adhered to, you don't know the car's history. One thing you could do is call the driver after you request the ride (you can call via the app), and ask them, explaining that any previous smokers in the car at all would give you a bad reaction. Most drivers would be honest about it since they don't want a bad rating. They would rather you cancel the ride than get a 1 star rating.
