Why Uber Drivers Say It Sucks to Be Them

Uber drives organized their first protest this week in Los Angeles over what sound like some pretty raw working conditions. A new union of Uber drivers (California App-Based Drivers Association) has just joined a Teamsters chapter and is speaking out against new fare reductions (which now make Uber cheaper than LA's buses), a huge increase in the commissions taken out by Uber, a "misleading tipping policy," and the company's rating system, which gives all the weight to reviews from riders, regardless of how horrible they may be, reports Neon Tommy. Here's a list of working conditions the Uber drivers want to change:

· "Uber used to take only a 5 percent commission from drivers' total fares. That number has now risen to 25 percent," says Joseph De Wolf, an Uber Black driver who is also also cofounder and executive committee member of the new union. (Uber also takes a dollar off the top of every ride as a "safe ride fee.")

· That is pretty nuts on its own, but it's also been coupled with a hefty fare cut. According to DeWolf, in December 2013, UberX (the least expensive Uber service) charged $2.40 a mile, with a base rate of $4; now the rate's just $1.10 a mile, with a base rate of eight cents.

That's especially painful considering that, as independent contractors, drivers have to pay for their own gas and car-related expenses. Eighty cents of gas is not going to get anyone anywhere.
· The company's rating system, which has riders rate drivers, uses one- to five-star grading. Drivers whose average dips below 4.7 stars get a warning email and are deactivated until they take a class about improving their rating; if their rating goes below a 4.4 after the class, they're permanently deactivated, which amounts to being fired.

· This is probably a well-intentioned attempt to hold drivers to high standards, but the effect is often that drivers who are asked to do potentially unsafe things (like, say, fit eight people into a car) are worried that if they don't do what their fare wants, it could result in them being fired.

· Drivers also take serious issue with the impression that Uber gives users about tipping. As one Uber driver put it, the company "brainwashes the public, saying the tip is included. It's never been included."
Uber, for its part, says it's reducing fares for a really good reason. "We just want to be the biggest company in the world, whatever we need to do to find more clients," a general manager with Uber said.

How to Delete Uber Account

It's been a rough week for Uber. First, private comments were made public. Then"God View" was revealed. Finally, Ashton Kutcher, an Uber investor, took to Twitter to throw-in his two and a half cents.
The combination of recent events have forced many to proclaim they'll never use the service again. Simply deleting the app from your phone will eliminate it as an option the next time you're in need of a ride, but your account will remain active. To complete your boycott, you'll also want to delete your Uber account.
Deleting your account isn't an automated process. Here's what you need to do:
  • Visit Uber's support site.
  • Fill in the required fields with your Uber account info. Be sure to put "Cancel my Uber account" or a variation of it in the subject line.
  • In the body of the message, provide the rest of your account information (name, phone number).
  • Select your Uber city.
  • Send.
After a few days, you'll receive a reply indicating your account has been canceled. You can delete the app from your phone at any time, or wait until you receive a response from support confirming your account has been closed.
Keep in mind, however, just because your account is canceled doesn't mean Uber has deleted your personal information. In fact, section 8 of its privacy policy clearly states it will keep your info (including payment information) until it determines it's no longer needed for business purposes. Whenever that is.

Why Uber Sucks

I hate driving for Uber


Not so much because of the lies they tell before you sign up about how much money you will make. Not even because of their douchebag logic that you will somehow make more money by earning less per ride after their fare cuts. I hate Uber because of the minority of a**hole/bitch riders.


One bitch said "Umm, is there any water in this vehicle?"


Yes, I believe that there is some in the car's radiator. It is mixed with the refrigerant ethylene glycol, which is highly toxic and may cause instant death if swallowed. Shall I try to get some out for you?"

Yeah, I really am a free mobile 7-Eleven. Free water, snacks and treats, my ass. Do I go into a 7-Eleven and say to the clerk that 

I want a free bottle of water and gum and, oh yeah, when you've done that you can drive me downtown in exchange for $2.40?

No, I do not.  I'm not like other Uber drivers out there who gives out water for 5 stars rating.
