Uber PROMISED drivers that if they get covid they would pay them for two weeks while they recover. They told me to upload proof. I did. Then they said they discontinued paying drivers. What an evil, deceitful company. I emailed reporters and am waiting to hear back.

Wanna know what's just as screwed up? I can still go online and accept rides.

Now that Biden is president, news reporters are less anxious to talk about covid-related issues & problems.
If you can figure out a way to blame Trump for your plight, I’m sure those reporters will trip over each other just to be the first to get a statement from you!

Those policies expired last year. Perhaps it’s not fair but it is what it is. Same thing with unemployment, you’re not going to receive 1k a week like in the early months. Good luck with the reporters.

I spent the last hour with the Uber app online. I took screenshots of them sending me rides, and accepted them. I then messaged the rider that Uber was knowingly letting covid positive drivers take rides. I then advised them to take a screenshot, cancel the ride and contact the department of health. I will be forwarding my screenshots as well. I have already notified the Florida department of Health and Governor's office.

They made a promise.
What these posters are indicating is that Fubar has terminated that programme. I never saw the announcement of termination, but it does not surprise me that Fubar has terminated it.

For what it is worth, one of the first drivers who tried to collect on it got the usual e-Mail to upload the documentation. He complied. Just as expected (by me and many others), Rohit sent him a reply with all sorts of nonsensical reasons why Uber was not gong to come across with his money. At that point, the denied driver took to various social media and publicly shamed Fubar for doing just what most of us who know Uber expected it to do. Khosrowshahi personally had to direct Rohit to give the driver his money. Several other drivers resorted to the same thing and most of them did get paid.
