    Whoa daddy... speak for yourself. None of that applies to me. I drive, yes for remuneration, but mainly to get outa the house and socialize with my fellow humans... As my good buddy Mark has said... It is better to let people think your a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt

    Sure, we get that thanks..

    Ditto, high fives, kudos to all of u drivers who r using Uber specifically as a stepping stone to get to where u want to go... therefore strikes & other ignorant activity is unnecessary..never going to happen..

    Uber as a stepping stone to get to where you want to go? LOL!
    Uber will step all over you, then stone you to death, before you ever get to where you want to go in life.

    My first time here and boy are there some angry folks here! People, we are not obligated to drive for Uber, period. Personally, I drive because I want to, I enjoy getting out when I want to and work as much or as little as I want to. I knew what I was getting into and it's just what I expected. All that said, there's nothing worse than being in a job one is unhappy with, simply find something else.

    Imo, we should try to organize national protests the week of their IPO. If we are able to spook investors we'd get their attention.

  9. go ahead and strike, just means the people not striking will have more rides

    The problem is they can’t find something else, the posts they post just show how desperate they really are. If I was them I would find a 10 dollar an hour job or whatever they can get for 8 hours a day and then drive another 4 or 5 hours to make ends meet. At least the 8 hour a day pay would be guaranteed money to pay bills. Uber isn’t guaranteed money, it’s luck of the draw if your picked for the next ride.

    But herein lies my question. Wages are low, i get that. Lets say you strike and fares double. Great.

    But double the price doesnt mean double the revenue. Many pax will stop using rideshare, or use rideshare less often (bus, train, ride from friends, driving themselves to/from the bar). If prices doubled you'd also have more drivers signing up. So rates go up, supply of drivers increases, # of riders decreases. Yes, your ride now earns you twice as much but you're only getting 1/3 of the rides you used to get?

    Is that better? I dont know?? But you can't pretend all uber would have to do is double the fares and you'd be raking in the $$$.

    If uber would stop squandering billions on trying to become bigger than Amazon, there'd be plenty of money available to pay drivers a decent wage.

    Only the bottom-feeder loss leader fares may have to double, and if most of those pax go back riding the bus, it's no great loss.

    Many fares are high enough now to support a decent wage, and if some have to go up, most pax will pay it. They're enjoying the convenience of rideshare too much to stop using it. And many pax don't even know how much they're paying for their rides anyway.
    The number of riders will not decrease dramatically. If some former bus rider bottom feeders go back to riding the bus, so what.

    If I can get paid decent rates, I'll gladly take my chances dealing with any increase in the supply of drivers that would result from a pay raise.
     
  15. problem is uber drivers don't stick around long enough to strike, 40% of uber drivers work less than 10 hrs a week,3rd, most drivers are broke,can't afford to strike,& Uber knows this, next question,jmo

    OH yeah, there are 20 drivers to take your spot if you decide to strike, + as long as more people want to sign up then quit team Uber, then Uber doesn't give a flying @%@%@% about us,GL,JMO
