Baby. Can't we talk about this???Driving for Uber (and Lyft) is like being in an abusive relationship.
im actually surprised Uber didn't remove the 2-per day on DF, and turn them into unlimited, and use the rate decrease as a added money grab for them.Holy shit. No, this is so much more serious than being passive aggressive. This is them COMPLETELY undermining their public reasoning behind DF fare cuts. You can’t say “We are cutting rates on DF fares to improve response times to customers’ needs” then ACTIVELY PROMOTE AND ENCOURAGE USE OF THE DF SERVICE. That makes it appear to be a BLATANT cash grab, trying to get drivers to work at lower rates while (eventually, if not immediately) siphoning part or all of the difference for themselves.
That being said. NY outright LOSING their DF undermines that “theory”, but the optics on this for philly drivers is horrid. These guys are such clowns.
lower rates mean = higher earnings!Smaller money for you means more rides.
They are not Un-profitable, in reality they are just extremely greedy! To the point of which they will drive down the Rideshare experience for both Riders and Drivers trashing their own reputation! Its Penny wise and Dollar foolish! Its insulting that Uber would again do a cash grab right before St Pattys day weekend as they had also pulled this sh*t last year at the same time with lower earnings calling it "up front pricing" that at that time they went from their ride take of 25% to as much as 60% or more! As MontcoUberDriver so brilliantly put it "like being in an Abusive Relationship" Well said!They are getting desperate now. That's what happens when the company you work for is unprofitable.
Driving for Uber (and Lyft) is like being in an abusive relationship. They treat you like dirt but make you think it's for your own good. I have not worked for either platform since January and unless they make some positive changes for drivers I'm done. It's just not worth it.
