    I normally dont work Wednesday so I am not planning on going out. I never chased the surge when it was good and I dont do it now. If I get it great if not I wasnt depending on ot so no big deal. I learned from beginning Uber & Lyft giveth and the taketh away:) You cant miss what you didnt get in the 1st place. When multiplier was around great for 1st 2 months. After that I could be sitting smack in the middle of the heat map. Uber woukd try to  send me request far away with no surge. There are nights without I wouldve done terrible but it helped. I just dont count on it. It took me awhile but after researching, trial, and error I found my area and time. I did have help & someone who pointed me in the right direction. Gave me some confidence to drive where I wouldve never driven before:) I've done healthcare all my life this was definitely new to me. I enjoy just like to see a few changes. Dont we all.

    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...

    Absodoodlutely I am. Screw these investors and their demands for less driver pay and quicker AV evolution.

    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.

    Does this affect the consumers/ riders?

      Sadly, you probably won't notice too much of a difference. There are always drivers who refuse to strike. You might have a little bit of a longer wait time if anything so perhaps order your Uber a bit earlier than you normally would.
