    Anyone use Sidecar either as a rider or driver? The flat setting of rates seems appealing to both parties but would love to hear some first hand reviews/experiences!!

    Some TNC may actually prefer the flat rates, while others may not. That's the beauty of the free market. Different market participants have different characteristics, to each his own, and each will participate in the market buying or selling in ways and they think are beneficial for themselves, thus helping them and their families in the process of participating in the marketplace. Too bad about Sidecar. Maybe Uber or Lyft or another new or existing TNC player will offer such a flat rate product (option) again.

    All on-demand drivers, Uber's, Lyft's, etc. should learn from our hardworking brothers and sisters and cousins in the auto industry. Their benefits are much better than ours, why? Because auto workers have their labor union. The UAW. The United Auto Workers. A strong, powerful, and effective labor union when it comes to fighting for their members' rights. But no one comes close to the power and effectiveness of Teamster's. Just mentioning it here I think has made greedy and arrogant Travis pee in his pants. Unions rule!

    We on-demand drivers should take charge, organize and bring in TeMsters to represent and protect our collective bargaining rights and let Teamster's decide on flat, variable, high whatever rates that Teamster thinks is best for drivers. As a TNC driver, though just one day experience, I would rather let my labor union Teamster's set the pay rate (per mile, per delivery etc.) than to let the greedy and arrogant filthy rich Travis and his likes to set the price so low as to torture us financially. Workers of the on-demand driving world, unite under the Teamsters!

    History has shown repeatedly that the Teamsters is a very powerful and effective labor organization when it comes to representing their members' rights. We on-demand drivers will enjoy much more collective bargaining rights under Teamsters than to fight for our rights on our own. Scattered we are weak, United we are strong, let's unite and organize under the Teamsters' umbrella of union representation!

    We and our families deserve the help and labor representation from the Teamsters. The organization will fight for and gain better pay and better working conditions for us drivers and for our families!

    I was misled by Uber's misleading propaganda while living in my folks' basement collecting unemployment checks and stupidly wrote more than a thousand posts in North Korea and more than 500 posts in South Korea being the mouthpiece of the filthy rich. I will devote my next 1,500 posts almost exclusively to fighting for and protecting on-demand drivers' rights to higher pay and better working conditions.

    We TNC and other on-demand drivers who push for Teamsters representation for on-demand drivers may first encounter unwillingness from our fellow drivers due to the costs of the union dues. But history has repeatedly shown union dues to be paid back to members many times over in higher pay and better working conditions fought for and obtained by labor unions.

    When you look at the labor market, those that are represented by unions typically make one to a few times MORE than the equivalent workers that are not represented by the unions. For example, if the Teamsters come in and represent Uber drivers while Lyft drivers resist the organizing efforts or Lyft's management somehow fends off union's efforts among its drivers, or both, you will see Uber drivers' earnings and working condition rise to double or more of Lyft drivers'. They are just historical facts. Hard numbers from various different industries that you can't ignore nor deny.

    That's why even hearing the word Teansters makes the arrogant and egomaniac Traverse shi* in his $5,000 pants. TNC and other on-demand drivers should seriously think about, prepare for, and bring in the powerful and effective Teamsters leaders to represent our drivers' interest and collective bargaining rights. Our children, our sick spouses, our families, and we ourselves, all deserve higher pay and better working conditions. We on-demand drivers have been left fighting on our own for way too long, and it seems like despite our efforts, Traverse is winning. Witness the arrogant and cruel Winter price cuts on ScarySaturday back in January 2016. We drivers need to enlist the labor expertise of the Teamsters!
