Uber representative in Tampa tells a big one.

For some Januaries past, Uber has cut rates with the claim that increased market share will result in higher income for drivers. Not true, never has been, but the new statement below is an even bigger lie.

“As we have always said, price cuts need to work for drivers. If they do not, we will roll them back.”

Uber’s actual response has been “hourly guarantees.” You can read about those in this post by Christian Perea on The Rideshare Guy blog, but I find more interesting the section on “Workforce Control.” There is a good argument here to support that Uber drivers are employees and not contractors.
