Check the Fine Print!
Looks like the big boys are posturing to cash out soon with an ipo or something with this frantic race for revenues and profit come hell or high water.Uber has a lot of nerve (balls?) calling drivers "partners". Drivers don't have a say in anything. Partners do.
I almost spit coffee out my nose.Oh joy. I can already foresee the next email from Uber.
..."Over the summer, we did a test with select drivers, and it turns out by paying higher commission those drivers made more than ever! So from September 10, we are increasing our commission from 20% to 25%. But not to worry, because as our photoshopped picture below will show you, September kicks off the busiest time of the year. So expect more demand than ever because of our higher commission rate. Uber on!
PS- We will continue to monitor our partner drivers earnings closely to ensure they're not making more than minimum wage."

Funny b/c it's just so close to reality....
