Driving Lyft Has Its Rewards, But Not In The Bank Account

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I have also been disillusioned driving for Lyft. I loved the idea of a peer-to-peer rideshare platform. Turns out that was just a cover story to get by the regulators and avoid employment regulations.

Basically, Lyft is just a cut-rate on-demand taxi and shuttle bus service, where a billion dollar venture capital funded corporation forces drivers to give rides they don’t want to do at prices that are below fair market and often below cost. The model is sustained through misinformation and coercion, combined with a vast supply of underemployed labor.

It’s enough to make anyone want to become a Marxist.
