A common theme among drivers is we’re not (usually) paid a fair compensation rate for the work we do. However, we’re all on the same playing field… right? Senior RSG contributor Jay Cradeur recently found out a discrepancy in how Uber and Lyft pay drivers, and how these different types of pay can be leveraged by drivers to drive smarter, not harder.
Have you noticed that whenever you call in to either Lyft or Uber’s Customer Support, they always say things like “Hey Jay, thanks for being one of our best drivers.” Or they say “We sure do appreciate your professionalism.”
You get the point. For the past two years, I actually believed these platitudes were sincere. Perhaps I tend to be trusting, and therefore I am more inclined to be duped.
