Low pay and riders lack moral standard to pay tips
Partner (Former Employee) – San Antonio, TX – August 11, 2016
Drives Uber X for one month. Rate per mile is too low. Most of drivers may lose money considering all cost and time on the driving. One critical point is over 95% riders do not pay tips. Often I help loading 4 priders luggage from airport, and unloading at drop-off, no-tips. This really reflects people lack moral standard, and human selfness and immoral. Drivers not suppose to do that, if not riders may give you low rate, and you are worried about suspension by Uber. Other service jobs gets paid tips, like waiters, barbers, even in the hotel, luggage carrying guys, why not Uber drivers.
Uber said it is going to more riders due to low rate, that just does not make sense, because you need to work extra time and energy in addition to car depreciation, car maintenance, and gas to earn the same high rate.
Uber drivers should form a union to protest Uber all together in order to earn federal minimum wage.
