This really exposes that for the most part, driver time is worth nothing to them, drivers
are worth nothing. Drivers are like Chinese ants: completely replaceable.
Easy there buddy. 84 minutes is not really that long of time. Broken down by hour this pays $27.85/hr from accepting the ride to drop off. A good rideshare driver should have no more than $5-$7/hr in expenses. So worst case this job pays $20/hr after expenses. Not “great” but by no means should $20/hr be considered Uber not caring about the drivers time. In your city of Milwaukee the minimum wage according to Google is $7.25. This one way trip pays nearly three times that. 👀
Furthermore, part of upfront fares is how busy it is at drop off location. It ends in Anaheim, the biggest city in OC around 9am, a very busy time of the day. There are a plethora of trips to Disneyland, John Wayne Airport, Long Beach airport, LAX and downtown LA. Potentially with surge. So a good paying fare out of Anaheim is almost guaranteed.
The only thing that makes this trip unacceptable is the fact that it’s 7:34am so the potential for high surge is always looming. I probably would only have jumped on it if I was an OC or SD driver looking to get back after an LA drop off. LA drivers would wait for something surge staying in LA county. It’s a driver preference thing, not a bad offer problem. IMO. 👊🏻
