    That's why your only making fifty bucks. I do however have days where I make 80 to 100 in 5 hours. It's rare but does happen.

    He also drives in one of the best markets, so his idea of busy and slow is skewed.

    Since you think that asking questions equates to telling someone what they should be doing with their life, you just roll with that.

    The problem with Uber here in Memphis, Tn is that ..

    #1 All Uber does is market for drivers and not pax

    #2 The surges come and go so fast (and lately not at all due to all the drivers) getting a quality surge ride doesn't exist

    #3 Because Uber won't call you from 20 minutes away like Lyft, and you have to be in a certain radius to get calls, you miss out on a lot unless you're in like one of three decent spots with the other 100,000 drivers to compete against.

    So yes, it is VERY easy to make $30 a day before expenses if your market has more drivers than demand and the only spots with activity are flooded with drivers. The drivers here in Memphis are so low as to sit downtown and tell pax they will take them for less for cash if they cancel the Uber they ordered. So I might miss out on a $13 fare so that other guy or woman can make $8. That happened to me twice on New Years eve with a 4.5x surge.

    Not all markets are worth it full time, and I screwed up and used my fuel card more than I was making and now have a negative balance that's going to take god knows how long to repay.

    I'm the voice of the UBER people, you are the voice of Travis Kalanick. I'm not sure why are even here but to calm down enraged UBER drivers from protesting. How much is TK paying you again?

    Well, I uberX/pool about 12 hours per shift, 60 hours per week, and for that effort, my paycheck is about $635, which, after gas, leaves me about $500, which is less than $10 per hour, not discounting depreciation. I'm going back to UberBlack in March, when biz for Black/SUV kicks in, that's about when the season begins for the north county hotels in San Diego, which use uberBlack a lot. Its' mucn more profitable. But sucks during the winter months (if you're on a lease, but it's doable during winter if you own the car).

    I'm still looking for the WalMart sandwich forum. I already found the home-made brownies forum.

    So you drive when everyone else is at work and wonder why you don't make any money?

    Well, I rarely put in 8 hours a day. Most of the time I am only logged in for 4-5 hours because my life schedule doesn't allow more. I routinely make 60, 80 or 90 per day.
