A chap who works one of the ranks in town got a similar phone call earlier in the year but back then the top earner was pulling a measly 102k.Imagine what the fukkers are saying go the NTA everytime they want the geography test eased or saloon plates released again.

The only ones who can stop dispatchers including F/N are drivers. I just do not be able to believe at times. That existing drivers are fully aware that dispatchers regularly go to the NTA looking for more plates to be realeased

I can't see any advantage in that, Hal. No doubt Free Now have nice glossy graphs to show how much full-time drivers working for the firm take in and how much more work they could cover with some relaxation in licensing laws. They probably already use the Immigrant Council of Ireland to recruit drivers, given DMs belief that many immigrants are working for less than minimum wage.

Then we have Jim Waldron (NPHTA enforcer) telling anybody that'll listen that we need lower entry costs because 21,000 drivers left the trade to pursue more lucrative careers/vocations.

I think allowing a select few to take the cream of the prebook jobs is an absolutely moronic idea.All it does is ensure that the majority of the fleet get left with scraps.Not great for keeping drivers fully engaged with the app.They just can't help shooting themselves in the feet.

That's takings not salary or profit, Hal. I'd say you'd have to be a Gold Star Ambassador for that kind of money. Govt or Europe ought to pay it some heed though. The so called "gig economy" isn't merely comprised of a few nixers that can be reasonably overlooked, there's serious money in it. There's loads of drivers working for Free Now doing 50-60 hours/week, they must be taking €75k/year in base/gig jobs alone.

What will the pissed off drivers do... give Free Now more free advertising or let the clapped out shiteboxes masquerading as limousines and hackneys have their work?

3 drivers/ 3 eight hour shifts and 100K+ is doable.
Especially if you're all called Mohammed.

I'd say you'd easily take €75k in base jobs off a 50 hour week. I wasn't far off that myself last time I done 50 hours and I only worked beyond midnight one night of the week and didn't cover any airport pickups, pub pickups, hospitality jobs, Hail0 for Business jobs, match jobs or prebookings. Neither did I accept any jobs south of Collins Ave or west of Ballymun Road save the odd one or two with destinations within my preferred working area.

However, 3 drivers per car is a positive thing from a road safety perspective. I've previously heard of FN drivers working almost around the clock.
