As has been said, what the pax pays has no relevance to our pay.
You can say it a million times and it'll still be BS.

Clearly you don't think like a business owner because no competent business owner, exec, or manager would ever say it's not relevant how the pie gets divided between them and another business they partner with on a business deal.

Even some W2 employees such as NFL players and UPS Teamsters drivers union care enough to make it part of the negotiation process.

Pax transactions are zero sum games. The more the company keeps, the less the drivers get.

You understand incorrectly
How much the passengers pay has
NOTHING to do with how much you get paid
Is that what the contract says?

Unless something's been changed in the newest contract Uber says the drivers are in a business relationship with the pax. Last time I checked a business relationship consists of the transfer of funds or other type of payment for goods or services rendered or for a trade.

Thus, the drivers not only have a right but also an obligation to themselves and their businesses to know exactly how much money, etc is changing hands between them as well as the amount changing hands.

Contact an attorney and sue them for misclassification of employment.
The best way to put a stop to this crap is for the govt to step in and set minimum pay rates for drivers and maximum cut percentages of the gross revenue for the companies.

The Washington state govt has set new pay minimum pay rates for drivers that take effect in January. That's a start but it's not enough. They also need to implement a CAP on how much the companies can grab from every trip.

Sounds like the government controlling the means of production. I wonder how hard it is to get an Uber in Venezuela? I bet the taxi drivers in NorthKorea are pulling in big $… The down side of living in a free country is you have to figure out what’s best for you and do it yourself. don’t be surprised in Washington example you noted if Uber starts requiring a driver to stay online a certain amount of hours or starts controlling when you can get online.( interesting to note the pay for UPS driver compared to a postal worker.)
Save the Marxist talk for another discussion. We're not North Korea.

A free country doesn't mean free of regulations. Some regulations are an absolute necessity.
