Uber paradox and why you should tip

Uber paradox and why you should tip

I wanted to do a follow-up article to the one I did in January (It's not worth it to drive Lyft and Uber in Sacramento) because this week Uber has been celebrating its One Millionth Ride in Sacramento. All week long they've been doing special things for Uber customers. On Tuesday there was Chando's deliveries, Wednesday a chance to win a trip to Hawaii, and Friday a chance to win a cruise. Yay. Great. But what about the drivers? Zip. Nothing.

What Uber SHOULD be doing is having two celebrations. One for the customers, but another for the drivers!  We are the ones doing all the work for miserable pay. Better yet, pay us more!

My prior post goes into all the reasons it sucks to be a driver now. I've actually stopped driving. I'm not interested in making money for greedy Uber and losing money myself. 

The Kum-ba-ya of Uber is gone... Read More

Building of new homes in Natomas picks up


Opportunity is knocking in this Natomas neighborhood. Now that the building moratorium has been lifted, nearly a dozen new homes are going up on Candela Circle.

It's been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina devastated the southeast coast and left thousands of people homeless. The country's levees came under intense federal scrutiny after ones in the New Orleans area failed, including the levee system in the Sacramento region.

A building moratorium was put into place in the Natomas area seven years ago because the levee system needed upgrades in order to federal regulations. Since then, they have been updated and in March FEMA lifted the moratorium.

Next door to Megan Frost’s home, construction on new houses is up and running.
