Talk to fellow drivers off the platform while you sit at the airport, don't do any uber airport runs. Sign on to Lyft since that's where Uber customers will head. Word of mouth spreads like wildfire, pretty unsure if Buff/Roc can participate in this since I know once someone sees a good surge they'll brb to driving so this should be interesting.
See I disagree, as soon as a surge pops up, ants will be flipping the switch in furious finger mashing fury.
This whole thing is a farce because it will not effect Uber at all. Im sorry guys but all of these guys beating the drum for anti Uber uprisings, its all a joke. If you dont like the rates, dont drive...simple as that. Dont play the game, whine that the rules are unfair but then continue to play the game. You have freewill, chose to use it if you dont like the rates.
Personally, I dont have an issue with our rates at they are. If they were to drop, then I may just shut it down altogether but at the current state, I have no issue with them and make decent money with my current execution.
Take this opportunity to make your own way. Pax are more than willing to pay you cash for a slightly cheaper rate than pay Uber.
The sad thing is that there are some drivers out there that believe that the strike made a difference and that Uber was hurt. I kept checking the app and didnt see a surge all day.
In the week leading up to and this weekend, I had one pax ask me about 'the strike' and flat out told me that they didnt care either way. If you cant get the commuters to be involved in it, then it is an effort in futility.
Uber knows for a fact that driver dissatisfaction is high and even addressed it in their IPO prospectus and basically agreed that it is going to get worse. Uber doesnt see it being a problem, the pax dont see it as a problem and this is why the strike failed IMO
