They will raise rates for customers. You will not see any of it though.

Probably lower rates for drivers to help pay for it.


You will not see it because they will jack up the booking fee.

They might not lower the rates but they might jack up the twenty/twenty-five per-cent that they take out of your earnings. Then, again, they might do both.

A pyramid scheme is a business model that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investments or sale of products and services.

As recruiting multiplies, recruiting quickly becomes impossible, and most members are unable to profit; as such, pyramid schemes are unsustainable and often illegal.

This is why Uber puts so much effort into recruitment and incentivises driver to do the same. They need fresh meat for the grinder. New people providing sub minimum wage labor and equity taken from the rapid depreciation of their vehicles.

Yes indeed! And once you figure out you've been had...it's generally too late.

So how does Ubers model resemble a pyramid scheme..drivers are compensated for their efforts (as crappy as the compensation is, it still exists)

They feel smart for 'seeing wuts reely goin on'. There's some phrases that can accurately describe both, like those given above. But like u pointed put, unlike a pyramid there2an actual service being sold. Having the market saturated with drivers isn't the same as recruiting and we don't make most of our money off recruiting. 3.5 years I haven't recruited one person. I make it all by selling rides.

We are being exploited, but in the usual capitalistix fashion where are labor is actually worth more than we are being paid. Thruout the last few decades the economy has tripled or quadrupled, but laborers wages have gone slightly down while the top's wealth has expanded greatly. Thanks to exploiting labor, totally different than a pyramid scheme. Uber happens to do it in a way even the dims can see for once since it's so blatant , but since they still haven't made the connection with it being the norm in our horrifying economic system, they say Uber is a pyramid scheme.
