Millenial Pax Will Be Introduced To Their 'New Economy' Soon Enough

I enjoy people.

Always have, and I'm the KING of hearing 'I don't know why I'm telling you this, but' stories.

It's part of why Uber appeals to me, plus the 'lies' of income, but that's another thread, lol.

I've also lived through quite a few very successful 'new lives', so I know that driving for Uber is just one more chapter in my book, not my lot in life.

I see the CONSTANT UNC Charlotte University surge here in Charlotte (sure, some of it is Uber's 'ghost surge', just like the rider app 'cars available' screen, but stay with me here you tough to please forum monsters).

I also have mistakenly ventured into that no mans land after 'drinking hours' start, and I have been PUNISHED by the true Uber rider peeps Travis Kalanik targets, showing them the cheapest, newest form of their future lives.

Here'e the rub.

These little twits don't even SEE that the very way they treat drivers, will one day be their future from their 'bosses' (lets prioritize):

1) No tip and no real living wage
2) No respect, almost a lack of respect, for the service performed.
3) Make your 'server' wait for them for more than 5 minutes, for a 3.80 fare, after your company takes their share.
4) Want 5 star service for a 0 star wage
5) Speak to your 'server' as if they can't do enough to please you
6) Treat the 'servers' property as if you own it, and your momma don't care you're a drunk idiot
7) Rate your excellent 'server' a 1 or 2 because you just didn't like the fact they wouldn't let you openly drink in their vehicle, blast their music, or carry on vulgar conversations about sex, blow jobs, and cunnilingus, like anybody but your little mind gives a shit about what you DON't know about any of those subjects.

Yes, Travis is showing them who and what they are worth, not us, the drivers.

See, the way I see it, is this new generation is being conditioned for socialism, and what's sad and funny, is they don't even put the puzzle together.

This new 'sharing economy' is socialism / communism at its peak, and a part of me is sad I wont be a fly on wall in 20 or 30 years watching these silly millennials figure this out, and remember how they treated the first wave of us, who saw it coming.

You heard it here first.

Feel free to quote me, big squirrel nuts and all...

This was excellent until you brought in concepts that really didn't fit - communism and socialism. The sharing economy is neither of these, and using those terms as pejoratives distracted from otherwise excellent comments you made previously.
(I studied Socialism when I was attending Oxford many years ago.)

I love my pejoratives, and will keep them where I placed them.

You may misquote or diminish my pejoratives, but it makes them none-the-less valid, Oxford-studier-person (many years ago).

Thank you for responding though, as all discourse is welcome.

"Say pejorative one more time", my wife says as I'm typing this..

Written, cast, and directed by a Blockbuster (or similar video store) clerk, no less.

All hail Tarantino...

And Pejoratives, of course, lol.

True socialism/communism frowns upon the sharing community, anything you get must come from the government unless approved by them. I have family in Cuba that we send books and magazines that she rents out, if she were to get caught it is jail time.
Wow.

To your comments, and 'DesertDriver', who I actually ignored based on my own self imposed '1st response rule', lets roll.

Look past your 'edu-macation', Oxford or otherwise.

This 'shared economy' is grooming folks for "Guvment" support, is my (personal) belief.

Companies cannot run sustainable 'loss leader services' unless the 'Guvment' steps in, and lets take a second to check said "Guvments" 'business acumen'.

Name me ONE 'guvment' business entity in the 'fiscal black' (black is good here, sir, don't worry about 'black lives' just yet, sir)

Where do you think these broke Uber drivers will be looking for healthcare, phones, clothes, housing, etc, based on current earnings, much less future earnings?

Maybe I misunderstood your post.

Maybe YOU will supplement the industry crash.

If so, I need a phone, housing, and a check, ASAP!

Your analogies are all wrong and proves you know nothing of socialism or communism. In a socialist or communist territory jobs are for the government, they don't supplement private businesses because there are none.

The government gives you a job, let's take Denmark(the happiest place on earth...ha-ha.) If you don't have a job they will create one for you because you are taxed upwards of 90% to help out those that CAN'T work. This is why they have one of the highest suicide rates in the world(great place to live huh?). The elderly who can't work kill themselves because they are a burden to their families, the mentally ill who serve no purpose over there...yep kill themselves.

You are talking about programs designed to help the less fortunate which are socialist in theory but a needed evil. They won't turn this country into a socialism, we can have socialist leaning regulations like minimum wage but until they take over the business for themselves we aren't nor even close to socialism.

"USPS was profitable by $313 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2015, and operational revenue was up $233 million over the same period last year,.... aided by a 14.4 percent increase in package volume.

The Postal Service still suffered a net loss of $1.5 billion in the quarter -- down from $1.9 billion in the same period last year -- due to its obligatory payments to prefund retirees’ health benefits and workers’ compensation costs."


Retirees’ health benefits and workers’ compensation costs cause a $313 Million profit to become a $1.5 Billion net loss.

Gives one food for thought.

Uber has a lot at stake in the driver lawsuit which is going to trial.

We're not sure how you got from sharing economy to government assistance. I participate in the sharing economy and I am far from eligible for public assistance. Then again, maybe that's a function of education. We're not sure.

Desert Driver, may I elaborate, please, fine sir/madam...

At current driver wages, in most cities, especially Charlotte NC, BEFORE expenses, Uber drivers LOSE, based on my post-graduate business studies, and I freely state such a fact, since I am NOT an Uber shill, trolling these boards, hoping to sway public opinion.

Uber, on the other hand, wins, with a 50-70 Billion dollar valuation.

May I ask a question of your fine, previous 'Oxford educated' self?

Based on your exemplary educational resources, are YOU seeing the economic beneficial interest in continuing your employment with said non-employer UBER?

Regards, fine sir / madam, indeed.

Oooh, you're talking about people actually trying to support themselves and make a living solely off Uber. No, that won't happen, especially since the average Uber hourly rate calculates to just over $7 per hour in most markets. Yes, you need a real job if you're going to drive for Uber. But speaking purely pragmatically, anyone who tries to make a full-time gig out of Uber is on a fool's errand and is eating stupid pills.
Driving Uber is a little like being a cowboy - it's the one thing you can do after you have failed at everything else.

Well that's a different discussion altogether, lambchop. First you were talking about individual government assistance and now you're talking about general spending which has nothing to do with supporting individuals. How can we discuss when you keep changing topics?
Oh, you shexy (yes, spelled that way for your Uber Troll Self) UberPeople.net Troll, you.

Thank you for exposing yourself, although the mothers who may have witnessed you 'flare your coat' at the UberPeople.net 'bus stop' may have issues.

I'm talking about Uber driver costs, versus Uber driver expenses, versus the 'Guvment' jumping in to save the USPS, like they have (lol)

Or any other Guvment agency.

100%+ cost over-runs, FOREVER.

Now, back to Uber's business model, lol.

Yes, I understand sunshine.

But, Your non-employer, maybe misleads non 'previously Oxford educated' folks.

You wouldn't like that would you, sir / madam?

So few people have any real grasp of what socialism is and does. But many, many people love to use the term as a pejorative. Of course, people who do that are instantly recognized (by me) as poorly informed dunces who likely understand very little in life.

You are an interesting person. Somewhat incoherent, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't have a grand time partying with you.

Sorry beautiful, i don't use 'Eve', 'poppers', or 'swing' your way.

But, I am a capitalist.

And a patriot.

Always and forever.

You know the truth about Uber, so stop trivializing it, that's all I'm saying.
I doubt you're actually a capitalist, but you likely are a huge supporter of the capitalist philosophy, as am I. I own a couple businesses and I drive Uber as a means of community service and to feed my blue collar fantasy. I'm a patriot, too, but I'm still not ready to drive most American cars, but that may change at some point, too.
