    I am a Uber drive. I drove in Calif and now in Colorado. If u don’t get a long ride. U won’t make ends meet. In Calif. I was making 300-400 per week part time. But you have to take into consideration the gas. tires oil change food. and the taxes. We don’t make that much. Now that I’m in Colorado I make less. Uber is taking out 25% for their fees. And a lot of the riders do not want to tip us. And we rely on those tips. It’s just like I tell them you go and get your haircut, u tip. U go to a restaurant

Same as a bar, you give them a tip.

    Well we as Uber drivers are doing the same thing we are giving the service. Uber doesn’t care about the drivers because they know they can get away with taking a lot of money from us. So it’s a lose lose for the riders and the driver but a win for Uber. The regulation has to change. We can’t even collect unemployment.

    But it’s OK for the riders to attack us verbally and physically. I even had one rider canceled the trip on me and I didn’t know it and she thought she got a free ride but she didn’t because I got a hold Uber and they made her pay.

    I have been verbally assaulted and I have been physically Assaulted but uber once’s again really care. Things really need to be changed. It needs to go better for the driver. There’s so much benefits for the riders. but not for the drivers

    I’ve never heard of Softbank until I read this article. And it gave out a lot of good information for us to know.But I’ve been using Hertz for over five years because of the low rates. Often if I can’t get a good rate that I would go with enterprise. But I also saw a website for Turo. And I was checking out some of their prices and I was just wondering how a owner likes to rent out their vehicles to other people. Without these Rent-A-Car companies around what will we be using. It will be very costly

It will be very costly to use Uber and Lyft and a lot of times the drivers don’t want to go for a long distance if they can’t get a rider back.

    I moved from California to Colorado because I did not want to be homeless and California. I have two jobs security and Uber. But by the end of next year I have to move again. Either to Northern Arizona or northern Nevada due to the health of my youngest daughter. I’ve already checked that my company is involved with both state so the transition would be easy. you got to do what you Gotta do for your family. If I could go back to California I would do it but because of the rent is extremely high and

If I could go back to California I would do it but because of the rent is extremely high and when you’re on a fixed income the government doesn’t care. They rather have you be homeless then help you get into a reasonable (price) place.

    There are so so many news media that has reported the truth from the beginning of time. But yet President Trump will always say it’s fake news. Well how much fake news has he put out there. How much more lies is he willing to tell to bury the news media and the country. When is he going to stand up and take credit for all the bad publicity that he has conjugated up? When is he going to finally shut his big fat mouth and step back and let the people who truly know the news report it as they see it.

    Well. As I am a Twitter fan. I am still using Twitter two to-three times a day. I will take that over Facebook any day. People come and go off of the social medias.

    That is some really heavy stuff in that article. But to trust Ronan Farrow, I don’t know. He tried that with his father Woody Allen and Woody Allen denied it 100%. And that was never proven. So what makes you think that he’s telling the truth now. Now with Leslie Moonves. That is a way different story. We as outsiders do not know what goes on behind closed doors. Unless it was videotape or tape-recorded. But this is all hear say. All we can do. is sit back and wait for the facts to come out and than make a judgment.

    That will never happen. I am a Uber driver in Denver and we as drivers get way below minimum wage. On a good day a lot of us can make $300 to $500 On a bad day we can make five or $10. They are not Taking in the cost of gas food insurance and repairs. we are lucky we can come out with a dollar in our pocket. But yet Uber and lift are making millions to billions off of us. It has to stop. They want us to work for them but they won’t pay us.

    I hope President Trump knows what he is doing. Some of these might be traumatized for years or a lifetime. What happens if some of them get raped, end up working for the mob, going to jail or married off at a young age even get killed their parents will never know about it. He opened up a bad can of worms and for what (reason.) This needs to STOP.
