Actually you are right. In the county of LA, we have para transit where taxi drivers ferry handicapped and other immobilized riders. They get paid more.
Listen folks, this is important for you to know.
How this works is that government negotiates a contact with the taxi companies. Usually the government gives out contracts to the lowest bidder. Obviously Uber is the default lowest bidder. They make their 25% commission and booking fee no matter what. They have so many desperate drivers that raising driver rates is not going to happen.
