Why is that guy paying $18 a month without so much as even one benefit. That "living wage" slogan is just propaganda their gonna use as a pacifier in case shit really gets ugly or some how we unionize.
How about u keep your "living wage" bailout for the irresponsible and offer benefits (401k, medical, pension)

He definitely needs a lot of luck but his interest rate is almost "predatory lending".

Is anybody old enough here to remember Santander leases? Plenty of people with low or no credit score took loan from them and supposedly there was a lawsuit going on at some point but don't remember any result.

1- Start using damn condoms or put your wife on birth control.
2- DON’T finance a new car to use for rideshare, that’s stupid. Start with something dirt cheap that you can either pay cash or at least pay it in full in a short time and fast.
3- Do research and start fixing your credit history/score because that 17% interest is a robbery.
4- Start thinking in another profession and make plans to switch because Uber and Lyft won’t be around forever.

I get that things are harder than they were in 2017 but hey... in 2017 people were saying things were harder than in 2016 and in 2016 things were harder than in 2015... get it? Each year more drivers = less pax for everyone so you have to make financial decisions that make sense.
