The construction of your edifice has been monitored for some time now.

Expect city building inspectors soon.

Most drivers protest Uber's lousy treatment.....by accepting the next lousy offer.
I switch to another app whenever that happens, and I stay at that app until they piss me off. Then I switch back to Uber. I call it a penalty. I have noticed that Uber's customer service has improved during the driver shortage. They seem to get that people stop driving for a while and it costs them more to be penalized by drivers in this way than it does just to take care of the dispute. For me, it's usually only a 10 or 15 dollar issue, anyway. Lately, they've been paying it to keep me driving.

Also, sometimes they tell me they'll get back to me. I tell them, okay, I won't drive until the issue is resolved. They get back to me faster, now. I don't know if they'll keep doing that when the driver shortage is over, but they seem to be okay for now.

LOL I received and unsolicited text message from "Claire" - Uber Driver Account Specialist - inquiring as to how they can help me to "Get back on the road."

After several exchanges of them attempting to send me to help.uber.com to actually answer my questions, I blocked them.
Claire sucks, she was supposed to pick me up for my vacations and no shows!

Yes. Shorter.

But, come on buddy.
It's the only thing I preach about ... I'm trying to bring my flock home to safety. Off the streets, out of the slave quarters. It is my soapbox.

Uber drivers are just like minimum wage workers.... You would think minimum wage workers would all just refuse to work for that low pay, and then the business would have to raise the pay, but there are way too many people willing to do anything to make up penny or 2. These people can't see the big picture they only see what's right in front of their eyes.
Yes, ants should brush up "Army of Labor" theory ... :rolleyes:

1) Most aren't that upset on a regular basis.

2) And those who really are upset deal with it by going right back online the next day. 🤷‍♂️
There's a third group...though you loathe us, we exist.

...........S...........H..........U.........F..........F...........L............E............R...........S.............

The best fare is a ride that pays, but never happens.

I don’t even know how it’s legal how they can make changes to peoples pay without warning them or agreeing to the changes, When we were paid over two dollars a mile, I was making great money, and so was Uber. But the companies greed ruined all that. I thought the most ridiculous thing is when they said “hey good news guys, we’re changing the rates so we could make your earnings more consistent” But what they actually did is made our rates consistently lower as they were making consistently more money. I also like the part when they said that what a rider paid and what we make are separate, then adjusted trips based on an inefficient route! BS! FU Uber
This is the problem.

Back in the day when drivers were getting properly compensated with 2$/mile, the PAX was only paying a small fraction of that.

This company has lost BILLIONS doing this.

What's the problem? The company lost billions while "properly" paying the driver $2/mile. They have since rationalized driver pay in an attempt to not lose billions.
