Or free public transport like the entirety of Luxembourg?

OK, not a big place.

How does someone with small kids and the weekly shop cope with a driverless taxi?

Go watch supermarket late on Friday, Maybe not in USA. Loads of people in other countries can't afford a car (actually usually it's the insurance that they can't afford).

Why are new entrants that are basically doing nothing useful allowed to continually push down driver wages and conditions and sell below cost financed by a massive Corp or foolish Venture Capitalists?

You could order by mobile phone before Uber. Traditional taxi and hackney companies that treat workers better also have apps.
