The Uber driver who says he’s been the victim of a hit-and-run was stunned by the fact that his employer, Bluebird Taxi, is actually hiring.
The company has offered to reimburse the taxi driver for his losses, but he has yet to agree.
“It is one of the greatest scams that Uber has ever seen,” said the driver, who requested anonymity to protect his employment.
“The only way you’re going to be able to recover is to go to court and get paid.”
The driver said he has worked for Bluebird for two years and earns $40,000 a year.
Bluebird, based in Brooklyn, has about 40 employees.
Uber says it has about 7,000 drivers in the U.S. but has never officially said how many of those are employed by Uber.
The cab company’s website has no way to determine how many drivers are employed through its app.
Uber’s website says it uses drivers’ “personal and business details, as well as their credit cards and vehicle information.”
Uber spokesman Brian Goetz said in an email that the company was aware of the allegations and was investigating them.
‘No way to prove’Uber said that while the company doesn’t verify drivers’ credit card numbers or driver records, it will provide a refund to drivers if they are reimbursed for their losses.
Uber also said it would review the drivers’ background checks, and said it will offer the driver a one-time $1,000 cash payment.
The driver was so upset about his experience that he asked that his identity not be revealed.
His experience is the latest example of how Uber and other ride-hailing services are exploiting the drivers who drive for them to make money.
Uber, which is owned by Uber Technologies Inc., operates in more than 60 countries.
According to its website, Uber is the world’s largest ride-sharing company with more than 40 million drivers.
In February, Uber shut down a carpool service that charged drivers a flat fee to pick up passengers from San Francisco to New York.
In November, Uber suspended its app service for a week in New York City, and Uber also shut down its app for the weekend in Los Angeles, Boston and Chicago.
Uber has been criticized for using drivers as unpaid contractors.
The taxi company has not been accused of using a human driver, and many people believe the driver is paid for the time he spends picking up passengers.
Uber’s reputation has taken a hit since the ride-share service was banned in New Jersey after a state judge ruled that it did not have the legal authority to do so.
Uber has also faced backlash for not paying the workers who work for the company, and for not using fingerprint scanners to verify drivers credentials.
