I can only afford a JUNIOR jumbo jack (no cheese), or a chicken sandwich, but not both. Only 2 months ago, both were $1.49. Occasionally I got one of each. Today it went up to $1.89. I think a year or two ago it was $0.99.I remember when a Jumbo Jack was .99 or 1.29 w/cheese back in the early-mid 2000s. I went to a Jack In the Box a few months ago where the same Jumbo Jack was 2.89 or 3.09 w/cheese. Went again last night and the price has gone up a full dollar and a half to 4.80-something. For reference, this burger used to be on their value menu.
Inflation? Higher gas prices? No problem! As independent contractors, we can raise our prices like any other business on the planet and simply pass the increased costs to others.There has also been, separate inflation issues, upward pressures on wages/labor as a result of the pandemic.
I think the problem of drivers who refuse to work less than 5x is overstated. I've spoken to six Uber drivers (separately and in person). Among them:Uber is now a publicly traded company and has to make profits. They can’t make profits with a strict 75/25 split and a fleet of drivers who refuse to work for less than the pay of doctors.
I literally devoted a full paragraph explaining why everyone would benefit. Did you get a chance to read it?Why would they though? It only benefits you the driver and takes money and customers away from Uber.
I still get spammed by pings 20 minutes away all the time, especially 10pm-6am. So yeah, they are.No they don’t. I live in North County. Everyday my rides startup here and I haven’t heard one person in quite a while complain about the wait time. But during FM over 50% of the people complained about a wait or the cost.
my head hurtsWell think about it and the surge and the search Uber just incorporates into their take of the price so so when you hit a surge and you look at how much you made it's like 40% of the actual price the customer paid without the search the search it's something like 80% In some cases the surge is a lie And Uber is purposely misleading us which is fraudulent
