New Jersey Uber Driver Says He Gets ‘Short-Changed In Virtually Every Way Possible’

New Jersey Changed In Virtually Every Way Possible’

N.J., resident David Fagin tells us that much of this progress may be coming at the expense of Uber’s drivers, particularly in Northern Jersey, where it borders New York City. Due to New York City’s requirement for those providing for hire services to be licensed in accordance with NYC licensing  Taxi regulations has led to an excess of unlicensed for hire drivers and unlicensed for hire vehicles in New Jersey  — and  saturating unlicensed unregulated driver in New Jersey than the Big Apple.

Fagin says, works against Jersey Uber drivers, especially if they have to ferry passengers into New York. They’re banned from picking up fares on the way back and can get their vehicles impounded by New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission for operating unlicensed for hire vehicle and unlicensed for hire driver — and so to lose valuable driving time while stuck in traffic at the Hudson river crossings. “To drive for Uber in New Jersey is to be short-changed in virtually every way possible by an unfair and under-developed system in immediate need of revisions,” he says.  New York City TLC should allow us to pickup passengers in New York City to transport them back to New Jersey.

His comments were similar to many we’ve heard from other Uber drivers.  the folks on UberX, the cheapest of Uber’s services. Professional drivers trying to earn a full-time living have grumbled that the money is not as good as licensed  taxi cabs and licensed  livery cab service.

Josh Mohrer, general manager for Uber NY//NJ, declined to address Fagin’s claims specifically. He gave us this statement:

Since launching in November, drivers have been flocking to uberX in NJ as a flexible and lucrative way to make income without having taxi and livery insurance and plates. In the weeks and months ahead, we will continue to deliver that option to even more NJ riders and drivers – expanding the service throughout the state.

How much is Marco Rubio paid as an Uber spokes person?

Florida State Senator Marco Rubio has stepped up efforts in representation for Uber, by making special trips to Washington, lobbying on behalf of Uber. How can Marco Rubio represent Uber considering that this rogue app has so many legal issues that require a resolve? Is Marco Rubio paid for lobbying on behalf of Uber? It makes no sense, how he can lobby for them knowing all the legal issues surrounding Uber.

Uber is a transportation broker, which does not own or operate, nor do they have any control on the vehicles that participate on their mobile app network.  Here are list of issues and loopholes that Uber should resolve prior to having Rubio speak on their behalf.

  1. Uber should end any and all price gouging practices- which they refer to surge pricing- and ensure users ethical business standards
  2. hire only drivers who pass a thorough criminal back round check- ensure rider safety
  3. routinely conduct drug tests on the drivers- ensure public safety
  4. inspect all cars operating on their network via an authorized and licensed  repair facility not visual inspections- ensure public safety
  5. Uber should not use the privately licensed vehicles to conduct point to point taxi services -UberX cars are not insured and licensed and registered as taxi or for hire car services
  6. Uber should resolve amicably  on outstanding lawsuits in San Francisco and Boston brought on by their former drivers who were cheated out of tips.
  7. Uber should apply for central dispatch base licenses in any municipality it wants to operate.
  8. Uber should NOT apply for central dispatch base licenses other than the name Uber Technologies. For example in New York City, they have held for hire vehicle base licenses under the names “Weitter LLC”,  “Schmeker LLC”, “Unter LLC”- this is one legal way of bypassing legal liability.
  9. Uber should carry liability insurance under their name ” Uber Technologies Inc”, not Raiser
  10. Uber should carry an insurance liability other than the insurance which is based in Bermuda and has offshore bank accounts and backed by Goldman Sachs, which has funded Uber.
  11. Uber should also settle the outstanding lawsuit against it for killing a 6 year old on New Years Eve in San Francisco, and injury others.
  12. Uber should not advertise as a taxi service if it is operating itself as a car service or a luxury limousine service.
  13. End  practice of sabotaging competitors mobile car hailing apps, ( as it has done in NYC with Gett)

Uber has other legal issues that it must resolve in Canada, France, China, and many US cities.

So the question is, how much money is Marco Rubio being paid to be the official Uber spokes person? After all, when examining Marco Rubio’s personal history of  using state credit card for personal expenses, having close ties with financial thugs. In addition, Rubio’s false claims about his families emigrating to US during Fidel Castro, whereas the records indicate that his family came 2 years prior to Castro taking over Cuba begin to raise an eyebrow on Marco Rubio.

The big question is Marco Rubio, how much money are you being paid when everyone knowing the legal issues surrounding Uber Technologies?

 

 

thatUber has encountered  criminal drivers, bypassing taxi licensing and regulations, and even not having insurance. Most recently, Uber claimed to have purchased A MILLION dollar insurance liability but withheld it’s so called liability insurance from public, until it was leaked. The
