Re: Opposite day?
I think there's a missing bit there. It makes more sense if you insert an extra phrase:
"employees – drivers – get between twenty and twenty five per cent of the fare [and give it to us]. And the thought was if we could raise that to twenty five to thirty per cent [...] our margins would go up"
The details are a bit foggy, but my understanding is that Uber takes a 20-25% commission off the top, depending on how much they like driver, followed by another 10% because they're just so awesome, and some additional insurance fees for the same reason.
