What happens when Uber won’t pay you what you’re owed? It’s unfortunately more common than you might think. RSG contributor Paula Gibbins interviewed one driver about his experience – and how he got paid back by Uber.
As drivers we oftentimes have to blindly accept whatever Uber or Lyft tells us when it comes to what we should be earning on our trips, according to their standards and rate cards. But what happens when we catch them in the act of not paying us what is owed?
One driver caught Uber not giving them their flat-rate surge price several times and only got Uber to pay them for 5 instances that he was able to prove thanks to screen shots. The rest were dismissed because of insufficient evidence because, let’s face it, it’s difficult to take screen shots constantly while driving.
