Uber definitely has its benefits. You can do it whenever. It gives you a chance to see parts of your neighborhood you’ve never seen. You’re helping somebody out and they’re tossing you some gas money. You may learn something you never thought about from an unsuspecting passenger. But with all the pros for Ubering, there are most certainly cons.
I’m not talking about the slimy college students who cancel the ride halfway to their destination or the people who steal their mom’s Uber account to skip school on a Friday and see a movie. That mom may give you a 1-star rating. Ugh. I’m talking about a recent study out of MIT that says Uber drivers make $3.73 an hour.
I’m not sure how they calculated that but this is the type of article that makes people mistreat many Uber drivers. Hurt people hurt people. If you need to hurt someone trying to make an honest living – who do you see in the mirror?
I would be interested in seeing how they calculate what a doctor or lawyer makes by their metrics. I knew a doctor who lived his life with irrational exUBERance. He was a mean SOB. To me, the important thing is knowing what you do fulfills you in ways that allows you to live your life happy and healthy. I’m doing it so I can grow the nonprofit and that is the most satisfying feeling I’ve ever known.
