All of these complaints about the rideshare gig and I have to ask myself why don't drivers realize that we hold the cards until self-driving cars puts us out of business. Think about it, no driver, no service. Period. If we drivers ever came together and actively promoted/drove with the service who paid us more, we would change the pay system. You don't need a Union for that but a persistent, concentrated advocacy effort would do the trick. We could make these two companies compete for OUR business by just merely driving for the company who pays us more. The company on the receiving end of this would be forced to raise their pay as they would have the demand but not the supply of drivers. You can complain all you want but the only thing that will affect our bottom line is affecting Uber's/Lyft's bottom line. Step 1: Create a unified advocacy group. This would be the hardest part and would probably never happen. It's too much like herding cats with drivers as most of us are too busy eating our own. Seriously, enough with the Ants stuff. If you don't like competition, get a Government job. Step 2: Put the rideshare companies on notice. You are not paying us enough and we drivers will dictate the success of YOUR company by driving for the service who pays us more. To prove the point, if we could take one week and not driver for EITHER service, that would cripple the industry.You'd have pax requests and no one to fulfill those requests. In reality, probably tied or a close second to impossible because most drivers would not bre able to see the forest through the trees and have the discipline to work for the greater good by not driving. But I'm sure there are ways we could greatly reduce supply if we tried. Step 3: Drive for the service who pays more. Make THEM (the rideshare services) compete for our business. Paxs are not stupid, most have both apps on their phone and will simply ride with the company who has a supply of drivers. To summarize: No drivers = no revenue for Uber/Lyft. There is no way around that until self-driving cars are here to stay.
