Hourly Rate X

Hey guys,

I was wondering how much an Uber X driver can make per hour, before the 20-25% commission, in Central London (zone 1-2 of the Tube) from Monday to Friday :

- on commute hours (roughly 0730-10o0 and 1700-2000)?
- on other hours?

Best,

K.

Apparently it all depends on if you know how to work smart.

And that is from the gospel truth according to the original St. Pinocchio - Taz 7.

Not sure why so many Newbies are interested in hourly rates.

Its a self employed deal meaning you should consider your turnover per week or even per month because you hourly earnings wll vary from hour to hour, day to day and week to week.

Time for a job as a Security Guard and work as many shifts as you can in a nice quiet night shift somewhere.

£300 aweek +benefits £600 aweek total £900 .
Being in receipt of in work benefits is 100% legal.

Under declaring your earnings to make you qualify is not.

All Uber earnings are itemised which means you can't under declare.

I employ 3 people that won't work over 16hours.

Is that wrong?

Or are they just playing the game with the cards in the deck.

It seems a lot of Black Cab bile is motivated by some form of misguided envy.

I just fail to understand that line of thought that self employed can't account for an hourly rate of takings.
Work varies, due to a few variables, but in Uber's case at the end of the day/week/month, if a driver works a set amount of hours sometimes the difference is just a few pence up or down.

The issue is that the benefit payment shouldn’t be proportionate to paid income, it should be a safety net opposed to a lifestyle

I suppose that you benefit with these three on 16 hours at the taxpayers expense due to tax credits.
I wonder if tax credits were removed would you have to put your hourly rate up?
Or maybe employ one, full time?

If a system is there some people will use it rather than work harder.

If you were put in a position where you had to become a Carer for your nearest and dearest then absolutely you should be allowed to cut back your working hours with whatever benefit you qualify for picking up the slack.

The same goes for having children of school age.

Which is the case for my staff.

The benefit system allows them to work less and still keep food on the table.

Being a wage slave just makes people bitter and aggressive.

As evidenced by some of the spiteful and disgusting posts on here.

I worked 60/70 hours a week, alongside looking after the kids and doing the school run.

If I had slowed down and not pushed that hard maybe I wouldn't be Medically Retired from the only job I wanted to do and would still be doing it.
If you paid them a proper wage then they wouldnt need to claim tax credits.
You are obviously benefiting from this system.

Benefit at Tax payers expence?

I would rather they worked Full Time as it costs me more to provide uniforms and training for say 10 part time staff rather than 4 or 5 full time.

Have you ever employed anybody?

It is none of my business what they do in their own time.

And in the industry concerned I pay one of the highest if not the highest hourly rate in the area.

Slightly more than the National Minimum Living Wage actually.

Maybe you should have a look at some of the big multi national Companies.

As they are the ones paying rubbish.

And making their staff work a few hours in the morning then making them come back and work a few hours in the evening.

JLR are not taking Factory Orders for Delivery before September.

But as you know everything surely you knew that?

There isn’t a foolproof system anywhere In the world I think when it comes to money.it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor people will find ways round it or abuse it to make gains.
Why would one work for it when u can have it for free.

You can't force somebody to work more hours than they want.

Or does that concept confuse you?

If somebody wants to work 16hours then I will roster them for 16 hours.

Or do you think people should be forced to work when they don'r want to?

How EXACTLY am I benefitting?

They are on the same hourly rate as the full time staff.

Actually they cost me more because after all the cost associated with employing them, I have to process their wages, arrange and pay for ongoing training, DBS checks cost the same and uniform costs are the same.

Due to family commitments they can only work 16hours.

In your World does that mean I shouldn't employ them?

And as I have already stated I pay them much better than the competition.

At least now it is obvious why you are so full of bile.
