What a record-breaking weekends for me. I never made this much with uber even in the good days. I felt really blessed for all this and wished everyone was happy as I was.
As much as happy I was with this income, this is not all paid by the customer . uber has been paying incentive they call earning Boost. Earning boost is where they guarantee you guarantee surge for a certain amount of time.
I personally don’t agree with it because it can go away anytime. They should be Charging the customer more, so our income will be more livable.
I have done it all from being paid less than the minimum to decent pay so am not going say “quit if you don’t like it.” many others drivers are suffering, and that is not cool.
We should be making decent pay that is enough to leave and enjoy life with. This is not a complaint but personal concern as a fellow driver.
Uber is not my career. I am a film student who is trying do something with my life. But others are here to make this a clear. I do not love being an uber driver since I am in love with making films.
Uber needs to take care of all drivers so they can enjoy what they are doing. We should all support one another and not fight. Uber is not meant to be sole income? You are entitled your opinion but not your fact. Uber started out with $90k a year gig, and it was possible. Lots of people made money…and when they got big…they turn their back on drivers. Even now in San Fransisco, they are paying guarantee pay as high as $45 an hour. This a gig where you use a car that cost you $10k to $20k why on earth do you think this should be part-time gig?
I hope everyone is doing well.
