And after deducting the amount for the fuel and payment of the car, he had only with eight dollars for one hour.
He is against Uber’s rule that discourages the riders from tipping, because the drivers do not compromise in their service. Assaf has five stars from the customer satisfaction, but he is not satisfied with the ride sharing company. He said the company aims only on making profit and is less interested in the fact that the drivers earn below the average wage.Susie Heath, Uber Canada spokesperson in an email to the CBC denied Assaf’s complaint and said that the drivers in Ottawa earn a basic income of twenty five dollars an hour excluding the expense. She also said that the drivers in Ottawa like to work with their company because of the efficient earning option.
