    $17.22/hour....after expenses. Sounds simple, right? When does the calculation begin? I keep both apps on until I get a ride. Expenses? I get 24 MPG and last paid $2.41 per gallon. What about the hybrid drivers? Their daily cost for fuel is less than mine. Will someone please explain...

    I have always considered Unions to be the scourge of the enterprising businessman/woman. However, Uber has somehow managed to skirt every regulation that would require a business person to pay a living wage. No one in any position of power seems willing to step up and force them to do the...

    Isn't Uber and Lyft suppose to pay us at least minimum wage even though we're contractors? It seems like we're making less and less and the gas prices are getting higher and higher. Is this legal?

    No. Work smart not hard, plan ahead think about events, closures, train delays. Yes it's getting harder and now the nights service will improve from TFL But work smart not hard, if every single driver rushes to central London for a job think where less drivers will be? Not bad for a...
