Blame it on the rapists, thieves and rest of the scoundrels Uber used to fill in the ranks to make sure the would be enough cars to drive around everyone for 1979 taxi rates. The new CEO was determined to clean up and rectify this problem. He'd raise rates to attract a better class of driver, right? Haha. Oh, no! He'd take a "Minority Report" like, pre-crime approach to screening drivers. Being a technology company, they were of course ill-equipped to have an efficient means to process all the increased background checks that would be incoming. Thus, good drivers getting caught up. Welcome to the new Uber.
I don't know about all that. According to the current results of your poll, apparently one in every twenty believes they do!!UBER DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THEIR DRIVER PARTNERS!!!!
