Uber in Pakistan

Recommended Posts

Fascinating article about the Uber experience in Pakistan:

Quote

Because the drivers were on a fixed salary, they earned the same regardless of whether they provided a service or not. Many drivers frequently cancelled rides and harassed customers; often making them cancel rides. This same trend has been the case in India as well. At least in the immediate term, their own monthly compensation would remain unaffected.

Why are they offering a guaranteed rate?  I drove for Lyft a little bit a while back and never had a guaranteed rate.  If I didn't have a passenger in my car, I didn't get paid.

 

(I only did this to get some extra spending money, it did not in any way replace my day job.  I got paid to take drunk people home from bars most of the time, which was okay because at least they weren't driving while drunk and endangering other people's lives.  I ended up quitting because I didn't make enough to justify the pain of having drunk people in my car lol)
