    How Drivers Should Be Rated

    I know many drivers clamor for a 'living wage'. However, I think giving badges and earning ratings is a better strategy for higher pay. When customers are happy, drivers will get more rides.

The Chicago ordinance that threatened us all the passed in a meaningless watered down version. Riders are...
