YouTuber says very few Uber drivers have ‘any self-respect or dignity’

The Apptrepreneur (government name Kevin Rodriguez) is a YouTuber who makes videos about driving for Uber and Lyft. Like many other people making these types of videos, he doesn’t actually drive for either rideshare platform. He used to, but not anymore.

Law would force Uber, Lyft to pay drivers 75 percent of what riders pay

Uber drivers in Los Angeles are planning a 25-hour strike

Uber drivers in Los Angeles are losing their collective minds. At least some of them. As a way of protesting new rate fees Uber is rolling out in Los Angeles and Orange County, drivers there are going on a 25-hour strike beginning midnight tonight. Why a 25-hour strike? Because Uber is lowering the per mile fee from 80 cents to 60 cents, a 25 percent decrease.
