Drivers must unite otherwise Uber and Lyft will make us modern slaves to them, I was in the Strike last 25th in Redondo beach Hub and I'll tell you it was a success, but we have to keep up the pressure, so I was thinking of asking you fellow drivers what other way can we pressure these Greedy CEOs of Uber and Lyft. I came up with showing riders the exact amount of what we are making in these short trips and ask them to write their comments I. The app, other idea was to choose a future date that we only accept trips that are 1.4x surcharge and up or trips that are +45 min ...so what do you recommend ??
We’re all disappointed. The best thing to do is get a job and treat U/L for exactly what they are. A side hustle.

Blue moons only occur every 2.7 years... and you'll get a majority of drivers to strike every 100th moon... strike on ants...

We need to get together to carry out a massive strike in Bodton, Uber is killing us with less than minimum wage payout especially when pooling when other riders Are added automatically miles a way where you have to hassle in heavy traffic to pick up the rider for one $ 1.00 with some cents. In spite of the gas and repairs and physicallogical impacts hassling in traffic to pick several riders for the same fixed price,I think pool should be removed or limited to only second rider. Guys this a high tech slavery job.I have lost two friends from kidney failure due to driving many hours for less than minimum wage. Boston has become one of the most expensive city to live in . The roads are so narrow and complex to drive. Uber and Lyft needs to raise the rate for drivers to at least $6.00 for any shorter ride or pool.Guys Remember we need the money , but also take care of your health first. Being healthy comes first than Uber less than minimum wage money. When you sit in your car driving for a long time you damaging your kidneys while you’re benefiting Uber. Uber doesn’t care if you die or not, so it is your responsibility to take of your health before you damage your kidneys

The cure is a very simple one... if you can't agree to work by Uber/Lyfts rules... Take your friggin' car and go away and let those who can, do... it's obvious to me you never had to meet a payroll or have run / managed any sort of business... if you did you wouldn't be so Socialistic... the way life works is you start your own business or acquire skills that someone is willing to pay money for, then market them to the highest bidder... driving a car, while requiring some skill, is not all that marketable there are too many others that will work for less than the majority causing the majority to lower their standards and accept lower renumeration. So if your that concerned about your health and your kidneys I suggest you find another line of employment... I don't want you to take this personally but this forum is loaded with posts like yours and they all lead to the same place... nowhere... just observin'

Your words ring true and it's part of why we are we're we are as a nation. Humans let greed,lust an selfishness rule over us. I'm sorry to hear about your friends. No worries fellas, God is in control. Take care of yourselves better yet allow God too.

Wtf does it have to do with CEOs ? They are just the face of the company for people to throw rock at. If you want to do anything right, First you need to wise up and know who your real enemy is.
 
I guess if we are punching each other instead of unite....then we deserve what Uber and Lyft are doing to us!!!
You seem bad at math. Not in a bad way. But I mean. Go to the bar, try to organize ten people under a unified idea and tell me how it goes.

When we're done laughin' extrapolate that to the number of drivers and add the lack of a communication platform.

Then reconsider your statements.

Miguel be aware that there are paid trolls here with strict mandate to divide and conquer. So be prepared for onslaught of criticism and comments.
Uber's biggest fear is drivers united. So trolls here have a most critical mission. To divide and conquer.

Tweet every member of CNBC, Fox Business News, CNN Business, Reuters, Bloomberg. Make sure you tweet their anchors and reporters. They all have millions of followers worldwide. Therefore their followers will read your tweets even if anchors and reporters don't reply.
This gets your tweets in front of millions directly.
Post screen shots of what uber pays you and collects.
Nothing hurts uber more than negative publicity specially going to IPO.
My email blasts through my former employer has gone viral throughout all 120,000+ employees in over 36 countries. Each recipient has forwarded the emails to friends and family. All with same message requesting to be forwarded to everyone on contact list.
The original email now multiplied by millions and so on.
Start getting busy. Don't let trolls deter you.
