One will be the promotion of sudo-labour unions; by representing most of its drivers a union might held sufficient collective bargaining power enough to contest similar employment rights without the intervention of law and tribunals. In such a case, most members would be happy to drop prospects like holiday pay in exchange for, say, a minimum contract guarantee or a better pension scheme. Requiring Uber to comply disclosure standards equivalent to public companies also helps. Although Uber’s turbocharged management approach played a notable role in Uber’s $70 billion market value, the lack of clarity aggravated its recent scandals about how the firm treats its employees and drivers. Well past the stage of a startup, going public serves to the advantage to Uber through access to a much larger capital market, while leveling the playing field between the management, creditors, along with actual and potential Uber drivers.
Uber drivers believe that they will get more raids even though they avoid the long trips. The incentive scheme is aimed to take more trips, but this happens in the other way. It ended up in losing the customers satisfaction which they had on the company. In Delhi area, to get a ride from Gurgaon to Noida is very difficult as it is very long trip, so most of the people prefer other cab services to have a trip from Gurgaon to Noida. This incentive scheme has changed the drivers into jerks; this is similar to the Delhi’s shady auto drivers.
Companies are traditionally interested in selling a large number of products to make profit. The process of education of the customer is even more pronounced when we are discussing a luxury, high-priced car, which means that the break-even point is even higher than a regular priced car (around $15 000). The general perception would be that Tesla would lose money investing in the education of its future Model S clients, but the reality is the company has gained many advantages, including customer satisfaction, loyalty, and positive advertising. Bringing the car closer to its potential buyers is considered a risky move, but Tesla Model S has been successfully introduced in the market using this unique selling proposition and benefiting from the fact that the car is electric, which will not intoxicate the potential buyers when turning it on. In my view, the USP of Tesla Model S can be summed up as it follows eco-friendly education through high-performance, zero carbon emissions and luxury design.
Since Adam Petty’s unfortunate accident many people have had numerous concerns about the safety of all drivers, although Adam Petty’s deaths were definitely not the one to make people ponder the safety. Way before Adam Petty there was a lot of deaths that decrease throughout the years but gave many concerns to safety marshalls, and spectators.”History tells us that it often takes tragic incidents to make people stop and think. "(Jenkins) This comment made by Nick Harvey, Team Manager for the PPI Motorsports Winston Cup Team, is very true, because if there were no deaths or injury in the sport then you would continue on the same path until something does happen. These deaths made people stop and think what could be done differently to avoid a death or avoid being badly injured in a
3. Local taxi companies dislike the idea because Uber takes their customers: There is high competition between local taxis for many years. When Uber entered the market, the ratio of customers to other local taxi is decreasing because the customers prefer to use Uber which offers a more comfortable ride at a lower rate. This is why local taxis dislike the idea of Uber. 4.
Uber conducted the test drive of the self-driving car in Pittsburgh. If this project becomes successful, then Uber will eliminate some of the drivers from the company, which may result in lower fares and added cost of maintaining the cars. Some experts predict that, this cost will balance the bridge between the larger addressable market and the increased demand and others say that, Uber will enter into the new unknown business model. With the current model of Uber, the vehicle cost lies with the drivers, who own or lease their own cars and they are responsible for taking care of maintenance and gas. Uber takes the percentage commission from the fares, this commission can change based on the demand.
Due to this cheating by the Volkswagen; drivers are paying more for the gas as compared to the advertisement of fuel-economy and also releasing dangerous chemical in the environment (Schiermeier, 2015). The fallout of the recent scandal would cost Volkswagen
However the number of accidents reported should have dropped even more than it has today, that is what David Strayer told New York Times, “‘We’ve spent billions of airbags, anti lock brakes, better steering, safer cars and roads, but the number of fatalities has remained constant” (Balko). Therefore with all of the safer cars the numbers of accidents should have decreased, but because of the distractions like the phone in today 's world the number remains constant. “Our return on investment for those billions is zero. And that’s because we’re using devices in our cars”
Driverless cars will be an appropriate fit to our future because driverless cars are much safer than regular cars, they are easier to use, and they can help save money. Driverless cars are more secure than regular cars. Firstly, road traffic accidents kill about 37,000 people a year in the US and 39,000 in Europe, with driver error a contributing factor in over 90 per cent of them. People are testing these cars to confirm a safer future (Fleming). This figure reinforces that because of people driving it causes more accidents, therefore we should have autonomous cars to reduce accidents.
Although we live in a society were cars are thought to be necessary, as time goes on less and less people are interested in getting a license. There are many advantages of limiting car usage. There are easier, more efficient ways to get from point a to point b by skating, riding a bus or a bicycle. Worldwide there have been experiments where a community would be banned from using cars in order to reduce smog. In Bogota, Colombia a program was created where people have been prohibited to use their cars while only allowing buses or taxis.
