After Driver Protest, Uber Kenya Agrees To Raise Commission Rates For Drivers to 82%

Updated: Nov 11, 2022

So many Uber drivers complain that they are not paid enough, yet they continue to drive everyday despite knowing this reality. Why is this? Is it because they are dumb? Well, not quite. It's mainly because of false hope from Uber. Uber promises that they reward drivers with huge bonuses when it reality, the bonuses require significant hours of work per week, often times 80 hours per week, and that hourly rate often times trickles down to less than $10 per hour after expenses. How is that legal?
