NOTE: The conversation with Uber CEO Travis Kalanick and driver begins at the 3:50 mark in the video.
Uber is not flying as high lately as you may think. It seems more and more people are having issues with the company.
In this video Uber CEO and founder Travis Kalanick is questioned by the very person who was driving him about Uber pricing and that the driver lost a lot of money working for Uber.
The driver even said, “I lost $97,000 because of you. I bankrupt because of you.”
Then Kalanick replies, “You know what…Some people don’t like to take responsibility for their own s***. They blame everything in their life on somebody else.”
Some are criticizing Uber as just being known as a ‘cheap ride’ and ignoring the needs of their drivers and are not paying attention to the ‘customer experience’. Uber does not allow customers to tip and some drivers are claiming they make less than minimum wage after expenses working for the ride share company.
