Traditionally, cab drivers have been considered unfriendly. With the advent of the “gig economy” in recent years, individuals from all walks of life have filled the role of cabbies. Except rideshare drivers only can keep using Uber and Lyft if they avoid bad ratings. Most drivers treat this gig like a business, which means putting yourself first. But how will that affect your driver rating? And why do riders give out bad ratings to drivers so capriciously?
Being a rideshare driver for Uber or Lyft means being in business for yourself. Essentially you own your own company, which means having a profit margin larger than expenses column.
