Wow, what a well written, insightful article detailing the life of a San Francisco Uber Driver.

"Just as I had the bonuses figured out, Uber started messing with them, making them harder to achieve. I began to realize what an amazing skill Uber uses to dangle its carrot so that a driver might do 10 extra trips a week and still miss the bonus. This is what Uber’s algorithms seem designed to do."

    I have felt this way for over a year, it is always so hard to not drive knowing I am giving up money.

    Uber's bonuses are scams! They make them seem possible but in fact they are next to impossible.
