How can Uber boast about higher earnings?

I am a new driver but this morning I went out for 5 hours and made only $ 28.00.
How can Uber boast about higher earnings? When in reality with hourly rate it's much lower?
Is Atlanta market over saturated with drivers?
I don't understand why Uber keeps looking for new drivers???

A car on every corner gives a cheap, convenient product that builds brand loyalty. The myth is that if drivers were not making money or needed tips, they would not be driving. Over recruitment and media hearsay wins over the reality that at times the driver loses money for accepting certain requests. 20 years ago when Walmart was in the news, it was about employees retiring millionaires. Now who is the largest employer and what are they known for? Low wages.

I take it you didn't get the guarantee this week.

Not sure how often they happen, but I've been invited to guarantees 4 of the last 5 weeks for an offering of $7600. I hardly ran even half of the guarantees, but they are a nice boost.

I only drive the weekends, never done a morning much less a weekday morning so I can't say how bad they are... but $28 sure is low...

If there too many cars uber doesnt have to pay the guarantee. One of the reasons they keep hiring

The hiring is also part of the marketing strategy. once someone is employed they tell their friends how low the wages are. This turns everyone into passengers when they hear about .75 or less with pool

Easy. They lie about earnings like a few drivers on this forum.

It seems Uber only learns from horrible avoidable mistakes that cost drivers time & money .
