The way uber is run is it treats "their" drivers as if they were private contractors working for a company and takes money off the top of fares. It circumvents virtually all the regulations that cab drivers are held to; most notoriously the limit on the number of cabs imposed by large cities like new york. In NYC, the permission to operate a single cab is held by individuals and can be bought and sold, they are known as medallions and they were once worth upwards of 1.1 million dollars. The mere presence of uber drivers has reduced their value to around 500k which means everyone who owns one loses about 500k worth of money they had planned to retire on when they sold their medallion (they are usually held by the individual driver and not the cab company).
good article that explains cab regulation
Also most drivers do not make enough money to justify the work and some simply drive uber to write off the losses, reducing their tax liability for their main W2 job. Uber has zero respect for the industry that it occupies and the only thing that makes the business newsworthy is the comical amount of money it scalps from people who have worked countless decades in a very heavily regulated service job and had to jump through all the legal hoops to get there, only to have their work outsourced to people in their own city.
1 im from the uk and this medallion thing sounds ludicrous to me.... after quick read on wikipedia, they seem to be a certificate or licence of some kind, that is purchased rather than earned...now that isnt great but on its own, but having the price as high as you say means that most people wont be able to afford it.... to own one of these medallions i would have to take out a mortgage.... i dont understand how a business can operate like that....
2 "Also most drivers do not make enough money to justify the work and some simply drive uber to write off the losses, " do you mean they dont make enough doing another job? because if thats the case then uber is a good thing... they choose to use uber, if it did not exist then they would choose to do something else to fill in that gap... and if they chose uber over that something else then it has to be better right?
