salsa festival toronto 2010 july. vote rob ford to cut wasteful funding to this perverted behavior. we don't need to pay for ethnotainment with government money, if they want it let them pay for it. Besides, no one in the suburbs is going to bother starting their own festival to enjoy, so why should downtown have any funding if the burbs don't bother to get funding.
Ok so I was looking at this graph put on Uber’s website today and thought it looked too good to be true. How amazing that Uber drivers make more than any other type of driver. But I knew from my own experience as a rider that Uber didn’t cost that much. In fact, Uber is pretty cheap if you’re a passenger. Sooooo…. how can uber be so cheap, and yet the drivers make so much money??? Now Uber has cut pay to drivers in Detroit to 24cents a mile , but we’re going to stick to the 90c for now. Uber takes 20% of the total fare from the driver for older drivers. Newer drivers get 25% taken. So we’re down to 67.5c per mile. Then you have to deduct tax: In some LA County's, sales tax is as high as 10%, and Uber doesn’t withold taxes for you. The drives are responsible for keeping this money...

Imagine what we had to do to get taxi 5 years ago? We hailed the taxi in the middle of the road for hours. Some stopped by and asked us where we’re heading. And if wherever we said is (a) too far (b) not profitable © traffic jam, the taxi driver would ignore us in a very rude manner and leave us. Even if they said yes, they would usually refuse to use the meter to calculate the fares, and they would usually double the price of the normal rate. Of course, coming from the taxi drivers’ perspectives, they have been driving day and night without guarantee of good rides like the one to the airport that can give them good earnings. But this is unfair to the riders who just want to go to a place for their convenience. With the introduction of middle-man services like Uber, Lyft ,Grab and GO-JEK...

Futuregrowth Asset Management has provided funding in the amount of R300 million rand into the taxi industry. Taxis are the main mode of transport for millions of South Africans every day, and the industry has been disrupted over the past couple of years with the emergence of Uber, particularly among the middle- to upper-class. Futuregrowth’s funding goes to SA Taxi, South Africa’s largest financier of minibus taxis, which, in turn, will use the money to provide financing to the company’s Zebra Cabs owner-driver scheme. SA Taxi acquired Zebra Cabs metered taxis in 2015. David O’Sullivan spoke to Gerswhin Long, investment analyst at Futuregrowth about the project.
