The more they try the more money they spend. The more they take away from their primary product development. The more money they loose when they fail.
Eventually they will run out of money and go out of business.

Really? If you don't believe in god then you have to at least admit that your mom created you and thus endowed you with rights as a human being.
They have the loss of teeth and the development of the beak, but where did the gizzard develop? They would not have been able to loose their teeth and develop a beak without one, and birds are the only animal (That I know of) that has one.

A friend drove a cab for years and around here that is not how it works. The cab company rents the cabs to the drivers at a set amount per day. The driver can accept jobs that come in across the computer but there will be a small handling charge that is built into the price per mile printed on the side of the cab and used in the meter. If they pick up some one who flags them down or some one who calls their Cell and requests a pickup then there is no handling charge.
The friend of mine that did it treated it like a small business. He had cards made with his cell on them and kept his car immaculately clean. After the first year 90% of his calls were from customers and word of mouth. He would also give discounts to his regulars. Really the discounts were nothing more than him deducting the handling fee from the printed cost.

Even in Canada, sadly.
Rope, tree, politician. Some assembly required.
It's simple. "Nothing is more important than my cause." That is the result of raising them to believe they are entitled.
