    Dont be a fool for the next Uber income scam "Cargo"

    This seems to be trying to excite the already grubby pax that bring food to UberX drivers. Nick Whigham seems to be one writer who cant wait to stuff his face with food on his way to media lunches instead of writing the truth about workers incomes.

    Just as I mentioned in numerous posts in the past, driver less will come sooner than people think. The old conversation of "Uber needs to raise rates" and "Uber needs to not flood the driver pool" is all a waste of time and a repeating conversation for drivers since the first U.S. price drops...
