Hey guys,

When Lyft stopped with Surge, I stopped with Lyft and, truth be told, I can't honestly figure out why ANYONE would stay with them after that.

Uber's "new surge" isn't AS BAD as Lyft, but it's BAD.

First off, that absolutely scripted Podcase with a "real" Uber driver who just kissed ass was like a spit in the face. Apart for being completely see though, they dare tell us how they are going to be screwing us, and how we should be happy about it??

I live in West Hollywood. Maybe I'm lucky, but during the old surge I would get 45+ min trip requests at 3x surge and accept them happily. Now? Why WOULD I?? It's a waste of time and money.

I could really get into it but you all are already personally affected by the change so you know how ****ed it is.

Long story short, I would like to know where I can find info regarding, and possibly help organize, a demonstration in Los Angeles (perhaps synergistically with many other cities for greater affect). But I don't want to just block the freeway, or stand on corners with dumb signs, or disrupt LAX; I don't know yet what would be most effective, but I'm thinking on it.

In the meantime, would someone, anyone, mind pointing me in the right direction please? I heard there may be something in LA this week but can't find info anywhere.


Thanks!

I scrolled down a bit on the first page of this forum and saw this thread. Look up the organizers and hit them up to see some of the options that you may have:

@ "Ride Share Drivers United"
you just missed them meeting on Tuesday @ downtown LA's City Hall to support City Council President Wesson's new motion to establish '$30 hourly minimum wage' ($15 earnings + $15 paid car expenses).

Aw man. Where did you source the info that the event was going to happen?

I really think there should be something targeted towards this new "surge" situation....

Waste of time. Don't bother. Everyone will think you are an idiot if you go.
