New York Uber Boycott Chips Away At Unfair Treatment

Posted on February 3, 2016

    To date i keep hearing from my customers that they have not been happy with their guber driver out of state. Business plan is broken and santander will not be financing any vehicles anytime soon. All those vehicles have an average of 80k per year and guver will be upside down when its tine to replace the vehickes (ooops. The independent contractor will be upside down) 15% discount, to increase sales (volume) thats a joke... that person needs to be fired for such a mistake. You cant provide service to everyone... it does not work. I dont do retail, i focus on corporate business that does not mind paying a premiun for service service servide
