Reading this report on Uber driver statistics. There's some good stuff in here, but one thing that stood out? Half the Uber drivers go inactive at one year mark.

"Within a month of becoming an active Uber driver-partner, 11 percent of drivers became inactive, defined as not using the service over the next 6 months. After half a year, 70 percent of those who started using Uber in the first half of 2013 were still actively using the system, and more than half of those who started in the first half of 2013 remained active a year after starting. These figures are consistent with an observation in the previous section: Uber provides a bridge for many who are seeking another position in the labor market, and it provides a longer-term option for others.

    That's a lot of background checks Uber pays for just to have them quit in the first year.

    Aren't they spending crazy amount of money on each recruitment too?
