Ouch.  Is this the answer we expected to the question, how much do Uber drivers make?

    Yep, this is why we complain that we are actually losing money once you factor in taxes and gas and maintaince and insurance, and so on.

      but we all pay taxes. Even those who are employed

      and some of us who are self-employed pay all those things.

      the problem here is that it just pays too little. admittedly uber and lyft do a good job advertising only the pre-expense figures.

    This is right after Amazon announced they are raising minimum wage to $15.
