You can and should be able to make a living out of it fulltime. Cabbie work has been considered a bread and butter blue collar fulltime avenue for decades upon decades. Just cause someone made it possible to hail a cab through an app doesnt change that. People needing to go from point A to point B is a basic need that the market tries to meet, and wont change as long as there are human beings on this earth. A large part of that need will be filled with full-time workers.You cannot make a living out of Uber long term. Weather it is eats, x, xl, Select or wathever you want. Instead of protesting, people should really work on getting real skills and finding a real full time job. Uber is excellent as a part time add on but those who rely on it to make a living are playing with fire and will burn themselves.
another basic need is the need to eat. humans do it at 3 main points in a day: breakfast lunch and dinner. For 2 of those meals, they may still be at work or not have enough time to prepare the food themselves, or whatever. Well the market has found a way to fulfill this basic need. This need will always exist. It can and will always be depended on to earn money from.
No one is playing with fire, both of these industries will always exist.
