The smart drivers have been putting in less hours if any at all. If it gets any worse there is no reason to drive. The costs begin to outweigh the earnings. Taking the destination filters away from us was a blow to earnings. I'll be driving 10% of the very little that I was driving. I won't be driving where uber wants me to drive, I only drove when I could control my destinations to a degree. After all, it is Rideshare, isn't it.
It was a good PR move and then they undid the most significant change at the end. I really wish other people would see Uber as just a means of making money as Uber sees all of us as a means of making money. This is a very young and very turbulent business; I would not put very much stock into it.
