    I wonder were so many drivers used to work before uber, as me i worked 2 month as home health aid (giving care to the elderly) and i am 21 years old, already started looking for new better job, i hope i will give up driving uber before summer.
    Very hard for health, back hurts, heart hurts, everything hurts after driving 16 hours a day

    Don't do 16 hours per day. It is a major overload on your body, brain and soul.

    It's good this is one of ur first jobs starting at bottom can only go up . If u ever had a job with benefits, vacations , 401k and get promotions . Then lost that to drive uber full time ur really thinking suicide. Driving uber had to make choice pay child support or rent can't afford both almost 50 years old moved in with parents

    yellow cab. there are no 16 hours shift, unless is double shift. only 12. and it is good enough.
    that is the correct attitude driving for Uber.

    I was a sales Manager. I purchased a car and got fooled to join this Titanic when they were advertising 90K a year similar to what they advertise now; 6K a month. It was the worst decision I have ever made! I don't know how you can even put Uber on your resume but I done with Uber and Uber payments in April
