More and more drivers are giving up on popular car apps due to low incomes. You just have to spend some funny time.
The Australian Ride Shared Drivers Association (RSDAA) found that 50% of drivers ran their ride share app within three months of joining.
The association argued that this is a direct result of the low interest rate paid to the current driver and argued that it was a "long-term, completely unsustainable" way of making money for the driver.
Drivers are known to be affected by all major RideShare platforms, including Uber, Ola, Taxify and others. Les Johnson, an RSDAA secretary, said the driver is encouraging him to sign a false promise.
"It is a good idea to start driving with the promise of high import capabilities, along with the fact that many drivers can borrow cars from the recommended suppliers who get high rents from innocent new entrants," Johnson wrote in a media report.
"Carrots were given to new employees."
Many drivers say they must work more than 14 hours a day regularly to make enough money to cover their living expenses.
"This time is against the law of fatigue, but the business or government department will not do anything about it," he said, "perhaps when fatigue causes life to be lost."
Due to low wages, surcharges and high fuel costs, some drivers drove cars into the ditch and the majority tried to reach an average of $ 16 an hour.
For example, in Queensland, the government has a number of drivers from driver license drivers, including $ 147 per year for driver license holders, $ 246.53 for scheduled employment service licenses, $ 200 for additional CTP payments, and about $ 80 per year for duty vehicle inspections We collect charge.
New drivers must have their medical and criminal records checked at their own expense before they start taking passengers.
Uber, Ola, and Taxify were contacted to get feedback.
A survey of 1,100 passenger car drivers released in October found that other costs such as fuel, insurance, and car maintenance were earned by more than 60% of the average hourly rate before being considered.
The results of the Rideshare Driver Co-operative Transport Workers' Union show that drivers have experienced violence or violence.
Of the people surveyed, 969 were reported to have been harassed or assaulted by the driver, which may be another reason why the turnover rate of the driver is too high.
One respondent said, "The passenger seated me in his seat while he was using his hand to rape me."
Thirty-seven percent said they were threatened, while nearly a third were racist.
One drunk driver called me drunken passengers **** and a terrorist.
Another driver joked that the passenger "takes me far away to rape me."
For example, Uber recently introduced new safety features, including an In-App Emergency button.
However, some drivers have argued that it may be difficult to prohibit driver apps that you think drivers are likely to have disabled their accounts.
"The rider can make absolutely no claims against the driver and the driver can bounce off the platform without any kind of answer," Johnson said.
"This has resulted in extreme economic difficulties for many drivers who have no income and in many cases still have to pay."
