Leave it to New Yorkers to ruin a good thing lol. So The New York City Taxi & Limousine Commission granted a petition by the city's Independent Drivers Guild to create a rule that would require Uber to add in-app tipping.
This gif says exactly what we're all thinking... pero like why??
We will tell you why.. Apparently Uber drivers have sued the company over their lack of benefits and because of it, they have lobbied for the company to allow tips. If Uber incorporates tipping into its app for New York City, you better believe it will expand the feature to the rest of the country. So if it does, we just want to say sorry to the rest of our fellow American lol
