      1. Hi,
        I see Uber like the worst type of company that could exist.

        No matter if they are “facilitating” a service to consumers, be it food delivery or passanger pickup or cleaning services, they really don’t do that much, and they make a huge profit, that is not really shared between their “employees”, because, well, those persons, according to tehm, are not really an “employee”

        I understand that for some people this “oportunity” can be an improvement in their income, but this only shows that there are lots of jobs out there that are ot paying what they should, and in fact, uber and related companies also do not pay what their “employees” should be earning.

        The most explicit case, I think, is the taxi service they offer, and I mean, they offer, because they impose a lot of rules and restrictions (they are not only facilitating the service as they argument), where in many countries, if you put things in paper, the drivers are loosing a lot of money…

        That’s why I don’t like it… 😦

      2. This is absolutely true 100% accurate. But the same could also be said about every company I have worked for. My dad used to say ‘They can replace you in a heartbeat” and I believe its true that CEO’s and businesses only care about a bottom line. But the bottom line for me is that I worked for Sonic drive in for 14 years and the highest they ever paid me was 9 an hour. Now I drive with Uber and I always make more than 12. I am bipolar and dyslexic and this might be the best I can ever do but I also am going to college slowly for graphic design. I feel so blessed to have these opportunities. I love nature and get to be around it, I drive in areas where my dad used to drive and feel so close to him, I deal with the worst traffic on a daily basis and feel like a bada$$. Please believe me when I say I am one of the luckiest people alive.
