No one who worked today is a scab. You can’t organize a strike with 1090 jobs. You get the market rate for wages.

Ok, then the riders will start to die due to the fact that the only people left driving are the extremely stupid ones working for such low pay. Stupid people traveling at 70+ mph is a receipe for disaster. This will be the reality if u/l doesn't raise driver fare rates. Then people die. Oh well.

Ubsz I thought you were one of the good guys :frown:
He's been anti-labor since I joined a few days ago.

I have every right to use Ubsz' sister. Since we're granting people the right to exploit others. I'll play along.

I'm not stupid. I'm pathetic & mentally ill, & spent my career building years shooting smack & on menial labor, & so I'm probably more dangerous. Now & then I like to remind riders that that's the case. They don't care about our income, but when I let them know I don't make enough to feel like replacing my brakes, & that I'm not sane enuff to care that that effects me too, maybe they'll think they don't want to ride in Uber/Lyfts anymore. Or they just acceot that that's realityin our brave new neofeudal world. It makes me smile inside. I preface it with "I wouldn't use Uber cuz they have drivers like me....etc"

OP is a scab who should be shamed

It’s only a day. That’s why people like this anger me. To be honest I’m just as stinking desperate as any other clown on this forum. No I’m not going to pay your bills, I’m going to pay mine. I drove extra Sunday, I drove extra Monday, and I drove extra yesterday. All so I could be courageous with some other fellow drivers who made the effort just like I did. So if you couldn’t be bothered, I can only feel sorry for you. Yeah this may do absolutely nothing, but even the effort is important even if only to myself. I’m not giving a single ride 5/8/2019. If you other fools couldn’t figure out how to make this minimal effort for your own cause, then hey I’m sorry if it makes you butthurt but you get zero respect from me.

It’s a free-market economy. You want free hand outs, emigrate elsewhere.

VOTE WITH YOUR FEET
GET ANOTHER JOB

You guys want a company to pay more than it needs to for a job, since when has any company done that?
The median real wage i this country has not been raised in U.S. since the 1970’s. This is the price you pay for capitalism. You like your iPhone, how about your hybrid car? All cams from capitalism.
Again, VOTE WITH YOUR FEET OR VOTE FOR BERNIE
YOU CANT ASK FOR TOO MUCH HANDOUTS IN AMERICA

You guys don’t understand the power of the market. The reason you ain’t getting paid shit is because anybody can do your job. Go find a harder job or at least one which is harder to get. Don’t blame the market for your lack of skills or the fact that you can’t be docile. Blame the system

I was warned by the forum authorities not to call people shills with no evidence. You may get banned if you continue (I mean unless I was singled out. My post was edited, but I see about 184 posts a day calling someone a shill & not beint edited, so maybe you've nothing to worry about). Just thought I'd warn you in case a less nice mod than I had, decides to ban you.

If it walks like a duck, looks like a duck , and talks like a duck then it’s a duck.

If you really believe that you control your own business, you don’t. If you think you have flexibility,you don’t and your doing 65-70 hours 7 days a week to make average money. Uber’s algorithm controls everything.

I don’t know what you mean by good. I’m just telling you guys what is right in front of your face. Uber scammed you into thinking you going to make good money, and you still want to work for a company that scams you.

This is America and I’m also entitled to my opinion and I’m standing with my brothers and sisters who chose to take the day off. It wasn’t a hard choice and really didn’t require much effort on my part. I’m also entitled to feel sorry for you because you’ve probably been settling for less your entire life so it’s what you’ll continually get.

Your day off was at no use.
You can’t win against the free market
My wage is based on my ability to acquire skills, land the job, and get the job done.
It has been like that since the beginning of time.
Go start a labor party in a capitalist country for 1090 job. You ain’t doing nothing. There was more Uber drivers today than yesterday

Not sweet talk. But very true. That's how market work in fact. U/L use high fare and low fee to attract driver and rider. When market is mature. They will cut the fare and rise the fee to balance the profit. So the good old day won't come back. It's time to get out if you can. Because as U/L driver. That's very basic skill job. No matter you speak English or not. California driver license only.

The problem with that thinking is, it ends up being a race to the bottom. Already most other low skilled jobs pay poverty level wages. These days people have to work two or more full time jobs just to make ends meet. And that is a clear drag on the economy since, if people can only afford on subsistence level costs, they can't contribute to growing the economy with their spending.

In a healthy economy you really do need limits on how low things can go. You want safety nets, protections, and support services, etc. Those actually act to keep the economy more healthy and growing.

One of the big challenges I see with U/L is that they're trying to manage a low skill, low wage workforce through IC status. Normally, independent contractors have some special training. Plumbers, electricians, etc. And they can charge a higher price for their services. That's important because there will be ebbs and flows in their business and they have to be able to account for that through higher income during peak periods so they can survive during lull periods. What happens with Uber drivers, though? Good times are okay. Survivable. But lull periods end up starving them unless they have other sources of income.

To tell people to emigrate is irrational and unhelpful. You think people should leave the country of their birth and home of their family if they don't politically agree with you? Sorry, but that's not how things work.
