Uber throws up some interesting results as there is a gender pay gap among the drivers. What is interesting is that their algorithm for assigning trips is gender blind and there is no negotiation over price, the price is the price. What they found was drivers who work more become more productive. It showed that males work 50% more so obviously make more money. Other differences were men drove slightly faster 2.2% and finally men picked better places to work like airports.

So non issue, nothing to fix

Clearly women are unconsciously driving slower due to some sort of fixable social factor.

Female uber drivers may also be more choosy about who they let in their car.

Certainly there have been numerous instances in the UK of female passengers being assaulted by male Uber drivers or male passengers.

Men get the same passengers sweetheart
Well, hard to explain to you why a woman might not want the same passengers, honey? After all, we all know that the reason why women are raped or assaulted is because they are out at night, picking up strangers, instead of staying at home to wash their hair ...

Maybe they wouldn't get a slap if they stopped driving like nuns.

uber showed that men did the graveyard shift and women worked sunday afternoons (when the sports are on :D ) ,so men and women picked different lucrative slots

So you want women to drive faster and possibly have an accident?

There is a reason why insurance premiums are higher for male drivers. :D

men drive more, women most likely have more accidents per km driven, they even said so in the podcast based on police data.

So from that you draw the conclusion that women in general have no business being taxi drivers, or that if they are, they should be paid less?

Or whatever other nonsense you can going to come out with to justify differential pay based on gender. :)

not related to the thread but some youtubers break the world record for an Uber trip by going East coast to West coast

More men are assaulted than women. It is more dangerous being a man than a woman sweet pea.
