Get what taken care of Making the ceo resign?

Not everyone will succeed that is a fact of life and it’s not the CEO’s job to make it happen. In actuality there are companies that cut the bottom 20 or 25% of employees in certain groups every year. Ride share companies don’t need to do that as driver turnover is probably much higher
Also there is no reason to just go after just Uber. At least this guy has run a real company before Uber. The lyft guys have no experience running a legit company and it takes a different type of person to run a developing company than to be an entrepreneur

I also did not have an issue with the part of the response which said it may not work for some. Many Uber/Lyft drivers are certifiable idiots that can't do basic math, speak English or drive a bumper car!! Thus, many drivers will never be able to balance the finances of driving for a living or develop driving skills. People who feel otherwise are the same idiots that thought the failed socialist stipend for not using DFs (destination filters) was a good idea.

Stealing from the hard working smarter drivers and giving it to the bad drivers is never a good idea!! The natural selection of the market will balance itself. Therefore, no ill-conceived artificial manipulation is needed.

If you're in a bad market, it's not going to work out for you. That's just the way it goes.

Uber can not be expected to pay a "living wage" to every driver who logs on in areas or in times of low demand.

A full-time driver in a big city can earn a decent living.
For a part-time driver in the boonies, it's not going to work out.

Dara is being practical, not sentimental, and I appreciate the straight talk rather than Referral Professor or any other UberTuber who wants to pick apart an inconsequential comment by a CEO.

Uber/Lyft was always intended to be temporary option of income, or supportive income, or for some short term full time. Very few actually want to take it to the next level to becoming a chauffeur. But there is no future with UberX, especially when self driving cars become prevalent, whenever that happens.

Uber/Lyft are not reliable source of stable income, with constantly changing rates, adding and removing features; It’s a game and pony show all the time.

If some drivers cannot make this work for them, shouldn’t they just be looking for other jobs, where their skills pay them better.

Know your end goals you need to achieve through Rideshare, once you achieve it, get out, but don’t live in denial.
