Atrios on Uber

Commenting on the news that Uber has lost $1.2 billion so far this year, Atrios says:

Uber is one of those things that piss me off from a liberal perspective. Yes some local taxi monopolies suck, and especially if you're a person of color they aren't always exactly a functional service. But unlike with some businesses, there's a pretty direct correspondence with how much you paid and how much the person you paid gets to pocket. People who "fight for $15" one day, then brag about their cheap Uber experience the next really confuse me. A cheap ride means you just paid your driver shit.
