    here in los angeles these uber operators look for drivers telling them they will earn 2,000 per week and they have to pay them 750.00 per week for the vehicle..... when the driver does not make the 2,000 per week he leaves that so called employer... the owner of the vehicle has people ready to take his place. Uber failed completelly at the coachella festival... this weekend is coachella again.. someone should go take pictures of the chaos and the uber drivers to make a point in their state.
