I just started with UberEats and I can't tell if drivers receive a charge for the background check. I know part of it is covered by the fare, but is there an additional charge to drivers that comes out of your first paycheck? If you decide it's not for you after a few trips, would they charge...

When the next "Work Stoppage" (strike) comes around. Ws & Hs be?
When? Why? What to call it? How to organize? How to encourage max driver participation?
I will start the discussion by saying

Not that it matters to drivers, but when did Fuber raise SRF from $1.35 to $1.60 in DC market?? Last week's fares posted show $1.35 but this morning riders are charged $1.60??

1. An extra $1.10 for the 1 mile ride.
2. That empty return trip.
3. Marketing efforts.
4. Air fresheners.
5. Car washes.
I had a bunch of cancellations on Saturday night during a surge but most were around the 2-3 minute mark from acceptance.
One was definitely after 5 minutes and I saw in my earnings the $5.00 cancellation fee. What surprised me was that the $1.25 SRF fee was taken out of the $5.00 so I only...
The bad news is uber is the only one benefiting from the rise in rates.
$5.05 - $2.05 safe rider fee (directly to Uber) - 20% = $2.60.
