Glitch prevents Uber drivers from getting paid

    SAN FRANCISCO — Uber on Friday said it was working to fix an issue that was preventing its drivers from collecting their earnings.

    “We have identified an issue affecting drivers’ visibility into their trip earnings and our Instant Pay feature. Drivers will be paid for all trips and we sincerely regret any inconvenience,” a spokesperson for the San Francisco-based rideshare company told this news organization.

    “We are working to quickly resolve the issue,” the spokesperson added. “As always, drivers in California will see their weekly earnings deposited directly into their account for every trip they have taken after being processed on Tuesdays at noon.”

    It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the issue or when it began, as the spokesperson declined to comment further, but some drivers reported that they hadn’t been able to cash out for more than 24 hours.

    Drivers took to Twitter to express their frustration.

    “@Uber when are you guys paying the drivers?” @silvanaeagle said in a tweet to @Uber_Support on Friday afternoon. “SF Bay Area drivers don’t really like to work for free!”

    “Our team is working on fixing this issue as soon as possible,” @Uber_Support said in a reply. “Although the trip or fare may not appear on your statement, you will still be paid as normal for any trips taken during this period. Thank you so much for your patience.”

    In a reply to a different driver, @Uber_Support said in most cases Instant Pay would return to normal in a few hours.

    I've been on this earth for 67 years, and I've been down this road before with various companies who 'have trouble paying you", and the REAL REASON is company cash flow issues. They are spending more than they are making and they are getting tapped out in the cash department ( heard Uber hints of "IPOs" lately? Hmmm? What does that tell you? ).

  5. I look forward to a few years in the future when Boober will be releasing press statements that say “ we are aware of an issue with our self driving cars that cause them to blow four-way intersections at red lights. We apologize to the tens of thousands of people that we’ve killed and promise it won’t happen again!”.

    Although as most of us already know, boober won’t be around in a few years anyway
  6. The math is VERY Easy... the drivers bring in X million per day they are supposed to pay the drivers .7x million per day and Uber spends .45X per day.

    It doesn’t matter what X is. X is the amount Uber brings in every day.

    X- .7X -.45X= -.15X

    Eventually Uber is going to run out of money.

    Uber had to take out a payday advance to pay drivers. For those of us that have gone down that road we know it only gets worse until you stop spending money on stupid ****.
