Add to the list of problems at Uber: Driver retention. Only 4% of people who sign up to drive for the ride-hailing service are still driving a year later, according to a report in The Information.

The company's accelerating driver drop off rate is partially due to increased competition from companies like Lyft. But the number one complaint among Uber drivers is the pay.

    A female friend of mine sent me a copy of her earnings. It said 242.00 for 16 hours and about 44 rides. She is a single mom and you cant have her or any person dedicate themselfs to the slavery of uber. They would make more money delivering pizza from 5pm to 10pm The business model was a flaw and only 4% of humans dont have a life or family. This will become a great subject in any major university..... valuation means nothing if your burning through investors money like a fool (uber ceo)
