    This will not get a lot of attention, but it is an interesting legal concept on the way Uber controls the pricing. https://jalopnik.com/the-legal-argument-that-could-destroy-uber-is-about-to-1838255672 If we are truly contractors, then why do we not have any say in what we charge the customer?

    Seems to be a hot button in the US Federal election, even though it is a State Law. California often sets the legislation aspirations for the rest of the Country (and yes, Canada too) - eg. vehicle emissions, cap-and-trade, etc...

    Okay... So today I received, in the mail, a questionnaire from the state of New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, and the questionnaire is a worker classification questionnaire. I tried taking pictures of the cover letter and two-page questionnaire, but the Forum is telling...

    There is a reason that majority of people on the uber app don’t tip . I can’t get into the details as to why right now but. I will say it’s Uber’s fault and it’s not because they got them used to not tipping. I’m sure there must be a few on here that can figure it out . I’ll just say Uber wants...

    We should have the option, and not just on snow days, to add an additional 'bump' in price, a minimum amount like say $5.00 to our ride. Create our own 'surge' pricing... and 'snow' day pricing added to the Uber amount. The customer will see this amount in their 'up front' pricing and can take...

    Uber has lost its Employment Appeals Tribunal appeal in the United Kingdom concerning the legal classification of drivers. The appeal decision confirms the earlier decision that drivers are 'workers' rather than independent contractors. Uber has foreshadowed a further appeal. Here's a link to...

    Organizing driver is pretty much a joke and nothing but herding cats. What could be effective is a charitable organization that mobilizes massive amounts of drivers to show up to fill sand bags, give blood, cook meals for displaced people or whatever else is needed. What I would like to propose...

    I've been thinking about this a long time. I think I could take down the beast. Until recently, with the new payment breakdown, Uber had won a lawsuit that stated drivers were "independent contractors" and not employees. I know for a fact that Uber has been skimming off the top for as long as...

    If we are independent contractors, how come we cannot set the price of the ride?

    You get to be your own boss. You get to choose your own hours. You get to make money when ever your want. How often have you hear a pax say that?

    I wanted to know what everyone's experience is with Uber's timeouts for not accepting pings. A recent thread linked to an article that finally confirmed they exist as we all suspected. Personally at a $32 guarantee I accept 100% blindly. My incentive was different this week so I'm being more...

    Hey everyone, I work for a progressive Think Tank in Washington, DC. We are releasing recommendations for reform of the unemployment insurance system, which includes the creation of a job seekers allowance that would extend benefits to individuals who have not traditionally been able to access...

    I was just reading some of the post from other threads and wanted some open discussion. Specifically, when Uber forces Select or XL drivers to pick up X requests. I know I have been guilty of being put in timeout for rejecting too many X request. So the question really is... if Uber can...

    Talking politics and religion are the best way to get a 1* rating. If I am willing to take any potential hit with my rating can Uber do anything (or even count ratings from pax with different opinions) if I ask pax to sign an petition to amend the Illinois Constitution? I agree that an...
