After a long chat with someone at the hub today, I found some very interesting insight into the ways uber changes driver pay. I actually spoke with someone who was a driver previously and he was definitely on my side when I complained about the driver pay decrease. He said that he saw this before in San Diego and that Uber raised them after enough drivers complained. When i called in, the woman in the Phillipines didn't seem to care or listen. When i went into the hub, i got lucky and actually spoke to an employee whom had previously driven( they aren't allowed to drive when working there- i have been told it's a conflict of interest). He said he would make note of it and make sure my voice was heard, but definitely encouraged me to complain through the "feedback" part of the help section in our apps. There are a million reasons why San Diego drivers deserve more pay than .65/Mile i.e. cost of living, gas prices, the fact that we have to drive 20 plus miles to pick people up just to have them cancel.... PAX are paying the same rates and we get a decrease? If we all complain multiple times in writing and at the hub they won't have a choice.

He will probably teach him a lesson with deactivation
If that were true, then why are there so many drivers who were a part of the lawsuits still driving? Also, there's a section to offer feedback about rates in the app.

I think you found someone who listened for maybe 2 seconds until you left. Made you feel good but will not say anything.
He spent over an hour detailing his experiences and how upset he was that they decreased the rates. Also he said that i should actually give them written feedback in the app to say that i want them to be increased. Rates have gone up And down throughout the country based upon what they think they can give us. This is basic management.

Write in and complain to an algo, this should be interesting. Only one thing that will cause the algo to raise rates ... shortage of drivers.

Rates haven't lowered for pax. And they didn't raise or lower before

It’s the very rare driver that can make UBER a real, true viable business. It’s like a vulture payday loan, advancing a little cash using car depreciation, fuel expenses, loan interest, deferred maintenance and various risks as collateral. The new pay rates transfer wealth from the longer viable rides to the still non viable shorties. UBER hurt the few that could be profitable, did something, but little for those going backwards.
