They can come stand out in the garage, open doors and load luggage. Haha that will be the day.
They tried that at Bellagio then stopped. No more door men at uber pick spot at Bellagio anymore. City center is owned by MGM and some guys in Dubai world...LOL also some guys from Dubai invested billions of dollars in Uber in 2016....that is a year after uber started service in Vegas. MGM doormen can become uber drivers if they wanted we don't hate them they hate us. We are all poor why should we hate one another? over what? money? Tips? Hahahah I received $1 dollar tip in the app on Monday. $32 in cash.me love cash.

read this below: Michael Weaver, a spokesperson for Wynn Resorts, where doormen are unionized, said management wasn’t aware of any issues with Uber and doormen and the topic hasn’t been the subject of any grievance.

No issues? No problems at Wynn . No problems at down town casinos. and they all belong to the same union. So the issues is only at MGM properties.

Did they privatize the Valet? Is that new company Union?
U got it MGM got rid of Valet union workers and replace them with contract workers...that was 3years ago now they just realized that some how we the uber drivers are stealing their tips and their jobs......It took them 3years to feel the effect of losing their tips/income on top of that add uber drivers who hang out and work for $3.75 out of MGM a lot. I think they hate us and they are doing something about it.

You know what this is right, strip club money. They have no way to control those people going to strip clubs. They've already ordered Uber/lyft and can't be cherry picked.

I love it !
Yup and as a driver what's your incentive to give them a piece of what you get they don't give em to you at best they would open the door for them

They'll , Somehow get rid of these Employees....Yes.....MGM Violated the agreement but they don't care. Years later, after these Peasants Lose their Jobs....For whatever Reason, They'll Win their Complaint....Corporations Aren't Held to Statutes Immediately or Instantly, that's How they beat the System. After a Years of Making Profits before a Judge Rules in the Victoms Favor. Smartly.....They Leaked the Story.....

With the driverless taxicab/ bus / truck coming down the pike in the near future the robot doorman cannot be far away in the third industrial revolution.

Big saving in the future for the MGM in labor costs with no humans needed especially with the advancement in AI.

No need to tip the robot doorman !

No such thing as a driverless car in a real environment. Could a car go up and down a street with it's sensors safely yes. Could a driverless car recognize a youngster bouncing a ball on the corner as a potential danger no. Until we develop AGI (artificial general intelligence) there will be no such thing as a real driverless car. Best estimate for agi is 2040 although some say it will be much later. Many other issues to be solved which were all stated in other threads. AI is an overused term to describe any program real AI has to duplicate the brain.

These klingons have stolen 10's of millions from cab drivers from day one. The head doorman who retired a couple years ago actually drives a brand new Rolls Royce. Where's the IRS when they're needed.

The robot doorman is already here. Ride hailing via app. :wink: Just need a luggage monkey, and the driver can do that. Once SDC is a real thing, pax can load their own. Perhaps some unemployed homeless doormen can hang around the loading zones and offer to load luggage for a 50 cent tip or a big mac.

Yes they did. I feel that the board overestimated when this technology would be available. That is why we are starting to see some small steps which help the drivers. Corporate now realizes that drivers will not be replaced any time soon. Should be interesting to see what they do to retain their "partners".

They also have to improve the brand name. Drivers "partners" do that every day I look forward to see if they give anything back.

That doormen at aria With the tactical flashlight flashing Rideshare drivers! I don't feel bad at all. I confronted one of them. He had the strobe light at me. I told him his light was blinding me. Then on I didn't see him with it anymore. I was going to report him. I have a couple of friends at Mgm management.

I'm glad these guys are being affected by our presence. The dirt bags look the other way when the cab drivers are staging in our pick up areas.

I see that everyday cab drivers park in rideshare spot and go inside Aria to use bathroom or buy coffee or take break.

If you noticed the black female(door person) with a very short hair no longer there also the black dude (door person) that used to chased rideshare drivers is no longer working there. I called and reported the black guy to the security there at aria, I was there for 1min when he came up to my car and told me to get off property or he will get security. I showed him my rider name on my phone and told him go back to his work area and stop coming to my work area and stop harassing me. He didn't call security I did after I dropped off my pax at airport on my way back to strip I got on the phone and called aria and reported him and the person I talked to asked me about my car info ,,,then he told me he saw everything and he was watching everything on camera.
