You'll still have those who won't participate in the "day off" idea and will cash in on the higher demand.

You'll also still have those who don't use these forums and those who have to work Mondays.

Having fewer drivers will increase the surge. We will have a bunch of cry baby passengers complaining about the prices being too high.

Uber won't lower prices because that would affect their bottom line. they could keep decreasing how much drivers get paid.

The only way to put a hurting on Uber is to help Lyft overpower it. In a market as huge as Chicago, good luck.

Chicago drivers should organize and take our voices and numbers to our legislators. That's how you make a difference. Kicking and screaming doesn't solve anything.

Protesting is good if it's done effectively. Make the message clear.

REMEMBER people we got to take A DAY OFF THIS MONDAY.
As others have already said... the members on this forum represent just a tiny fraction of the drivers and even if every driver on here took Monday off there would still be plenty of ants out there to take advantage of what little, if any surge there might be. Totally pointless.

Nuff said. But brings home the point of our market overstaturion. They rather have us scrambling and wasting gas than to dare risk any lost of market control. Reminds me of presidential tatics same as used car dealership business plans. Some old gaint furniture warehouse did the same in 80s.

Overhire and let the most aggressive flourish. Damn if they whine or dont like it. We want hard hustle from hard scabble. We like it like that.

So Drive. Be the best damn ant for colonies around.

Watcb your 6. Drive defensively and smart.

Hows that working out in Seattle?

LA had an organized protest, even planned to block all roads out of the pits to stop any non participating ants from picking up at airports. Their protest was a complete flop, didn't even create surge. At most they got 150 drivers. Pretty sure probably 200 other drivers that regularly wouldn't have drove that day anyways, came out to drive hoping for surge.
