Uber Punishing Drivers Who Refuse To Use UberPool

I don't understand tactics like this. If a driver turns down ride requests, that's his loss. There is always another car that will happily pick up the slack. Giving drivers "time outs" just seems childish.

Uber has adopted a tactic with its drivers that parents use on misbehaving children: timeouts. Uber drivers who turn down ride requests risk having their workday paused as Uber locks them out of its system for up to 15 minutes. Some drivers wait patiently for the timeout to end. Others just call it quits for the day.
