More about Uber, Ipo, Ride Hailing Apps, Drivers, and Tech
In its filing together with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Uber spells out details about a driver recognition reward and directed share program. It’s a way for drivers to get back something even though they aren’t technically Uber employees.
Uber drivers may not get health insurance or other benefits, but after the ride-hailing company filed to go it is paying out drivers with a money reward and an option to put money into the company.

More than 1.1 million motorists are eligible for a payout of $100, $500, $1,000, or $10,000 (totaling about $300 million). The money reward will be received by Passengers in good standing who have completed 2,500, 5,000, 10,000, or 20,000 life excursions.
