    Yes we need to instead focus on new phone colors every year and maybe have a 4 tier camera bump next time.

    The narrative that drivers are being taken advantage of is toxic.
    Making them all W2 employees also denies them of a ton of tax benefits to run as a 1099 LLC.
    The discourse has been hijacked by people who have never even worked as a 1099 freelancer.

      Working as an SDE contractor and an Uber driver aren't really that comparable. SDEs aren't routinely being paid less than minimum wage hourly without benefits.

      Are you serious about less than minimum wage? All the calculations I’ve seen with that conclusion have been bogus where drivers are spending $100 per week to detail their cars, $20 on car wash every 3 days etc. If I drive for uber I’m washing my own car yo.

      Link a legit calculation and we’ll talk.

      If it’s really minimum wage why are there so many people still driving for uber as opposed to, idk flipping burgers at McDonald’s?

      I'll admit this is anecdotal based on drivers I've had conversations with on longer rides, but I know at least one guy that had a detailed log book of every trip he took with notes and claimed that many shifts were below minimum. I've never driven for them, so I don't have personal experience though.

    What’s really pathetic is that even flouting labor laws they can’t make a profit and probably cannot make a profit.
