  1. Quit
    One day, after a few years, I just had enough. Low pay. Weird hours. Company that did not actually give a "fig" about me. Fortunately, I had low expenses and enough saved up for a while, but that was just about used up. Then the magic moment came. I turned 65. Social Security. Medicare...
  2. Toronto (Ontario)
    Hello Bubberss, Does anyone know if Uber was successful in getting drivers included on the essential workers list so a younger driver can go get vaccine shot during Phase 2 that starts next month? You can read more on it here...
  3. Sydney
    I just read this... ABC Article "When will I get the coronavirus vaccine? Who gets the vaccine first?" Does anyone know if drivers will be considered "critical" or "high risk" workers and therefore get access to the vaccine faster or will we be waiting until the end? I think Phase 1A may start...
  4. Atlanta
    Regardless of how you feel about wearing the mask, it's required... I'm interested on how other drivers handle the paxs that do the following... 1. Jump in without a mask and have to be asked? I've been 1 starred for this BS! 2. Don't wear the mask properly... below their nose? Again you...
  5. Tampa
    Just wondering if anyone with experience in the region knows what restaurants are doing to prevent COVID-19 spread. Are drivers still expected to enter the restaurants to pick up? Do most people in restaurants wear masks? I'm guessing most deliveries are contactless. Thank you!

  8. Minneapolis
    I am moving to North Dakota | Minnesota region. Fargo to be specific. When I was driving in New York I was part of Workers benefit fund which gave free benefits to anyone in NY.

  11. New Jersey
    Situation: So as many people here hoping for PUA benefits, I applied to unemployment using the NJ site (I'm NJ), which is not set up for 1099s/self-employed, but did it to my best possible ability. I received an email the next day that my status is filed, and I'm going to have $0/week payment...
  12. Articles
    In the Toronto subform, there is a thread about InstaCart users that put a big juicy tip into the app, then retract that tip after delivery. You can imagine, this leaves drivers seething in rage. There is, very likely, a subset of drivers who will channel this rage into passive aggression, and...
