Uber and Lyft have effectively destroyed the taxi industry. While Taxis had a monopoly and government corruption behind it, Uber and Lyft seem to be the same as Amazon.

They both lose money. As I understand, both subsidize their riders fares on a majority of rides. The fares are FAR below taxis: i.e. $20 to the airport vs. $40, from Harvard to Logan.

Further, a few friends have tried it and struggle to make $10/hr.

It is a race to the bottom. It is predatory in its pricing as they cannot provide their product at a fair market value.
