How are drivers losing billions of dollars when all the passengers are still being picked up? You personally may feel that you are somehow losing based on some other driver getting a longer ride, but in a socialistic way all rides are being covered. The same money is being spent for rides wether you receive them or not. There is no loss of billions. I bet you are one of the ants clamoring for a union as well. Guess what, someone still has to pick up those pax.
