    Ep #184 Uber threatens to leave Minnesota, and Uber EV drivers get a bonus, sort of.

    Ep #184 Uber threatens to leave Minnesota, and Uber EV drivers get a bonus, sort of.

    As we swing through the maze of the gig economy, this rollercoaster ride of an episode is packed with both heartwarming and hard-hitting stories. I'm sharing the scoop on scoring birthday freebies and the importance of human connection, like when Larry drove a determined young man to a job interview.  But it's not all sunshine and freebies—we're tackling the contentious debate over driver safety and wage regulations in Minneapolis, with giants like Uber threatening to take their ball and leave the playground.

    Navigating the gig economy's seas can be like wrestling an octopus, and we're here to share our playbook. From the comedic mishap of a tire inflation misadventure to the murky waters of Instacart's new terms of service, we're dissecting the power plays between gig workers and the platforms they rely on. Prepare to chuckle and ponder as we take you through the tech side of shopping apps, and don't miss out on the quirky tales of multi-apping delivery drivers. We get candid about the ethical dilemmas faced by delivery drivers, including the controversial refusal to deliver a Plan B pill order, sparking a debate on the intersection of personal beliefs and professional responsibilities.

The average Rideshare trip.

Hi driver, what’s my name? Ok can you take me and my 8 friends in your Honda Fit? Thanks, we just came from the Soup and Coffee convention with a bunch of tasty souvenirs. All windows down, we’re all chain-smokers. We’ll be having 3 different conversations and we’ll all shriek when we pass a Taco Bell, demanding that you go through the drive thru because we paid for the trip so we basically own you. Ooh just a quick stop at the liquor store cuz it’s only like a mile out of the way from my house, come on. And can you drop some of us off 10 minutes down the road? Thanks for the trip, 5 stars for sure. I’ll tip you in the app!

Info-tainment. Heavy on the “taint”.

It seems like the hosts of the show have enough gig work experience that they could share information or tips that would help new to moderately experienced gig workers. But it feels as though they consciously choose not to. Instead, you just get a bunch of surface layer, warehouse style water cooler talk. Nothing really funny or entertaining. It sounds like the hosts don’t enjoy doing the podcast or that it’s a chore. Also, the majority of the stories or information has been in circulation for several days before the episodes drop. Lastly, they operate in the same circles as many of the Youtubers in this genre. As a result, you get a lot of the same boring guests.

I learn to you guys all the time. I’m a driver from the Jacksonville Florida market. I’m also a merchant seaman.
