If somebody know why please let us know! Thx in advance !
To me it is a mystery. They could make as much money or even more and still provide the driver with a decent wage. They choose not too. The model they have chose is not sustainable long term. Eventually even the most dim witted soon realizes that he or she is working for less then minimum wage and destroying his car in the process. This is why you see UBER throwing more and more money at referrals.It does want drivers to make money, how else would it get richer?
Drivers are not content, which is why you have a revolving door. Lyft only challenges UBER in the US. Internationally they are no where.Lyft pays better than Uber. Why should they pay you better if your content?! Why should they pay you better if your still willing to work as hard for less?! How many drivers have joined their local drivers guild? sfdriversguild for the San Francisco Bay area, Independent Drivers Guild for NYC.
sfdriversguild had a meeting where they are developing their own Uber platform for the public to use free.
