Uber believes taxi driving should be part-time, secondary income for people who already have another job and a private car. Their goal is to be the one company monopoly of taxis and FHVs and in a few years, bring in driverless cars. They are testing them in Austin, Texas. Uber CEO said, that this way, Uber’s one cost – splitting the fares with the drivers – would be gone and they could make more profit. Today, they make ads attacking taxi drivers. Tomorrow, they will turn against all drivers. Stand Up, Drivers! Protect Ourselves!
