Lyft, but whatever, this extends to all those 'surveys' where the wide eyed and desperate looking sales help almost begs you for 'all tens'.




"no way to reward truly exceptional w/o punishing the perfectly adequate."

Like a feudal lord executing any peasant who doesn't grovel the way he demands that particular day.

Indeed, the whole "revolutionary" part of the ride hailing companies is just how much they treat their drivers as disposable robotic cogs with the bonus of being in a high enough legal grade that they don't have to take responsibility when their cogs fuck up.

Uber has basically told drivers their days are numbered and as soon as robotic cars take off, they're all fired, er I mean the work for hire contract which absolves Uber of any responsibility sidestepping labor laws will be terminated.

Edit to add: I think it's important to point out what the ratings are actually for. Lyft/Uber doesn't actually give a crap how fantastic your ride was all they care about is "Will this person return to our service?" The out of 5 rating hides the fact that it's distilled down to a yes or no rating with 5 being a yes and anything less than that being a percentage of no. If you have a large enough pool of drivers then the system wants to keep only those with a guarantee they will bring back customers and prunes any of those uncertainties, even if there is nothing actually wrong with them as drivers. Which then ultimately rewards the people willing to push themselves to unhealthy levels, with the shitty reward of not being fired.

Has any other company had a more batshit year than Uber? In lieu of a traditional report card, I briefly considered just copying and pasting text from the Book of Revelation into this article. Thatís how bad it was.

If the only options are pass/fail, then don't give me a 5-point fucking scale. That's like Surveys 101.
