Third year in a row they do the same thing. They lie in your face about "temporary cuts", they sugarcoat it with the hourly "guarantees" and then they finish you by taking the guarantees away making the cuts permanent!!! And the ONLY REASON THEY DO IT, is not over any "winter slump", but to KILL THE COMPETITION AND BECOME A MONOPOLY!!! They already killed Sidecar and now they are targeting LYFT, the only remaining competitor. Over the past year, I've increased my hours from 40 to 60, and I still can't keep up with my bills and my car loan, WHICH I BOUGHT LIKE A MORON TO DRIVE WITH UBER. Kalanick is going to continue to do this to us as long as we don't organize. Get it through your heads, we own the cars, i.e. the means of production here, they own nothing, except this stupid app. Let's organize, let's create our own app, and leave this greedy company once and for all. Drive for LYFT if you can. Venture capitalists, or big companies that are UBER's competitors in China and Latin America, are you listening? Come to the US market, use your app, pay us a decent wage, and we'll all switch from this lying company in a heartbeat. We own the cars!!!
