I recently started driving for Uber in an attempt to research its native purpose, which is to act as a ride-sharing platform for individuals seeking to monetize their desire to carpool. I notice a lot of people here think this is supposed to be some type of career. I don't think that was ever the intention by Uber, but it sort of evolved to become that. If people are willing to drive for abysmal rates, there really is nothing you can do about it. Not really worth complaining about.
