Uber everywhere....is a scam everywhere!

Shes right about Uber being a shitty unethical business model but her numbers are not right for NYC, Im figuring that strictly driving Uber with a 90+% acceptance rate will net an inexperienced driver in NYC about $10-12/hr pretax and an experienced driver $14-16/hr all pre-tax but after expense. This is purely anecdotal of course and very rough estimates from people Ive spoke to and experience.

I'm not going to argue with the woman's overall logic, but the idea that it costs 54 cents per mile to operate the average Uber vehicle needs to die.

Thats not her logic thats the IRS's determination.
She uses 54 cents per mile in her calculation, so she is using it as part of her logic - without actually looking at whether 54 cents a mile is a legit number for the average UberX vehicle.

There's a reason most drivers take the 54 cents per mile deduction rather than deducting individual expenditures, and it's not simply because it's easier to do so.
