    How is the NYC minimum wage calculated

    $17.22/hour....after expenses. Sounds simple, right? When does the calculation begin? I keep both apps on until I get a ride. Expenses? I get 24 MPG and last paid $2.41 per gallon. What about the hybrid drivers? Their daily cost for fuel is less than mine. Will someone please explain...

    Uber Drivers Make Less Than Minimum Wage

    Just saw this while watching the news and took a pic. He was first talking about how the richest man in the world, Jeff Bezos, pays his workers so poorly that most qualify for welfare subsidized by taxpayers. Then he showed a pic of T.K. and said Fuber does the exact same thing. Glad the...

    I HATE Unions......anyone else ready to join?

    I have always considered Unions to be the scourge of the enterprising businessman/woman. However, Uber has somehow managed to skirt every regulation that would require a business person to pay a living wage. No one in any position of power seems willing to step up and force them to do the...

    Minimum Wage?? California

    Isn't Uber and Lyft suppose to pay us at least minimum wage even though we're contractors? It seems like we're making less and less and the gas prices are getting higher and higher. Is this legal?

    Uber drivers only make £6 a hour..

    No. Work smart not hard, plan ahead think about events, closures, train delays. Yes it's getting harder and now the nights service will improve from TFL But work smart not hard, if every single driver rushes to central London for a job think where less drivers will be? Not bad for a...

    Below Minimum Wage

    I've driven for Uber in both Boston and now in San Diego. Lately the airport queue at all times of the day is over 80. On Friday night it was over 170! After expenses and taxes are taken out I have been making approximately $5/hour. I never see a surge. Even as late as 1:30 am last...

    The Uber economy looks a lot like the pre-industrial economy

    A new study from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), finds that the “gig” economy model popularized by Uber has a lot in common with the economies of poor countries today, as well as the US and Europe before the Industrial Revolution. Full article here...

    Measly $28.00 for 5 hours of Ubering

    Went out this morning for 5 hours and made only $ 28.00. Picked up 6 passengers. Calculation shows it is below minimum wage $5.60 per hour. Then, I have to deduct gas and car maintenance, cleaning, etc... from measly 28.00. Plus paying tax.. It’s almost like working for free.......

    Why Drive for minimum Wage???

    Why If all the tear & wear plus gas comes out of pocket, I still got to drive 3 × more than other transportation companies such as Taxis and shuttles Why if we get most of the business Web still struggling to make a decent pay week you got to put over 1500 miles a week and then if our car...
