Any Seattle drivers on here? $16 per hour doesn't seem so bad...

    $16 a hour to work as a independent contractor sucks for the amount of bullshit a driver must deal with daily

    Interesting timing with ridership already so low.

    Sorry to all seattle drivers but this is going to kill your take home. Uber is going to raise the rates so high to cover the additional driver pay that no one will take Uber's anymore. Eventually Uber will slash the number of drivers allowed in Seattle and you most likely will be out of a job...
