"We haven't quantified [how many new drivers have joined], but it's definitely happening in D.C., and it's happening to the most needy "

Day 33 and still no end in site. Soon everyone will be signing up to be a driver 😳

    Total dysfunction in our government. Who suffers? Tax payers. They all need to grow up and stop acting like spoiled children.

    The thing is though if everyone is an Uber driver then no one will make any money. This doesnt solve anything. Now Trump is just taking money from Uber drivers. 😡

    800,000. 

    Dara is so proud of this. Mixed feelings

    Here's to hoping that Uber does not decrease the driver's commission just because there is more driver supply currently.

    This shutdown is messing with everything. Do we still have to pay our taxes?

    This shutdown is really just screwing with everything. So sick of this country and administration.

    I have noticed business seems slower than usual - anyone else taking a break from driving? Maybe this is the perfect time for a vacation, not that I have the money... I just hate working for peanuts

      I purchased a 1 way ticket to Hawaii, leaving tomorrow morning.  I'll buy a return ticket when things pick up again.

        And drive Uber in Honolulu.  Not a bad idea if you can find cheap lodging. 

        Be safe. There are no TSAs

          Yeah.  I have family and a car here,  so that makes it a bit easier.
