I did the math. Coming out to $6~8 dollars an hour when all things considered. That's lower than the minimum wage. Prove me wrong, please.
Is Uber/Lyft a scam for drivers? Can people really make even the minimum wage?
The Guru Take
Average Uber driver earnings is around $15.68/hr
How did you come up with the $6-$8 per hour. We surveyed over 1,100 drivers and found the average self-reported earnings to be around $15.68/hour before expenses.
The thing to keep in mind though is that there is a lot of variability so if you're on the low end of the income spectrum and only making $10/hr before expenses, yea you could easily be making $6-$8/hr. But remember for every person making $10/hr, there's also someone making $20/hr or more: http://therideshareguy.com/how-to-make-28hr-as-an-uber-driver-in-san-diego/
