Offer something helpful then....Well I am 6' 8" so I guess I do have a rather big mouth, proportionally... LOL.
Seriously though, I think I'm just realistic. Strikes are generally ineffective, especially if done by easily replaceable employees.
Back in the late 90's, all the grocery store workers here in denver went on strike. Albertsons, Safeway and King Soopers. They sat outside picketing for weeks, possibly even months I don't recall. Their union paid them a small portion of their wages. Do you know what changed? Nothing. People barely scraping by made even less. In the end, they basically had to beg to come back to work and ended up no better off than they were. And that was after weeks... with nearly everyone on board. Why? because it's easy to hire someone to come in and bag groceries who doesn't care about the union. It takes like 20 minutes of training and they are a full-fledged employee. It's an easy job to fill, plenty of people willing to do it.
The effect of a one-day strike, done by like, lets say, 5% of the uber drivers, will not even be a blip on uber's radar. Even if wait times doubled, most people still won't have to wait more than 4-5 minutes for a ride, which most people would find perfectly tolerable.
Let's pretend I know Jack shit about Uber.... wait overall I don't. Bit get I'm being honest. I check my fares. Only because of what I see post on this site. I myself felt I was screwed on 2 fares since i have been here and my whooping 200 trips or so. Both on uber pool in the snow on same trip. After fighting my losing battle I decided this... No uber pool. Did I expect this money to come easy? No not really. Not after all the competition of new drivers started. Hell to most of you i am part of the problem as I only started back on September.Sorry the only word I Can't hear is Can't...
BTW: way past the strike issue
Great honest... Maybe that can work
Maybe check out Dryver. Offer different services such as a Personal Driver, (3 HR min) Corporate Accounts such as transporting vehicles to different dealerships etc... Picking up people and driving their vehicles. You would never use your vehicle on any assignment with Dryver, except meeting at their location.. .They pay per hour plus tips.Still independent contractor and you accept what job you want.. I know .they are hiring in Denver again... Wish you all the best!Let's pretend I know Jack shit about Uber.... wait overall I don't. Bit get I'm being honest. I check my fares.

I'm only here to try and make the smartest no at I can make and try not to have to Cherry pick my runs.. Not that I'm against that because honestly it's the smartest way to do it. I prefer to o my talk to my PAX if my dumbass can't find them. Or once they are in my car.
So I try to be fully about location location location. Because I'm trying to make as much money in the smallest window because uber is a second job to me as well as having a family just as most of you do.
I try my best to do what I can on the 1 and only platform I can drive on. I can't drive for Lyft. Hovit is a little too new for me and honestly it may be a vehicle age with them as well. I Basically have until March next year before I get booted from uber eligibility unless I can manage a pass because of vehicle condition. On April 28th I have back surgery that I'm being told will put me totally out of commission for 3 months.
I Basically have 7 weeks to bank all I can with only being able to put in 17-25 hours of ushering each week at most. The closer to $30 an hour I can clear the better. But since losing DF to SIS. (Truly me only real complaint) I haven't been able to do that even with trying my normal spots up north. I did hit one this morning in a new spot. Not sure how consistent from here on out but can't hit it early for another week sadly.
For these reasons I can't boycott a company who although sadly is shit in a lot of cases. Still helps me live and truly gives me the only chance of my household going u see when half the income goes away for 3 months. Trust me I get every points in most cases. That's just my case and I'm sure I'm not the only one out there. If there are truly drivers living in their cars.
