  1. Yes I feel mislead. I drive for uber & lyft in Los Angeles too. I had to get a full time job. You have to work really hard to make it driving full time. Im glad uber is getting called out!

  2. Most employers deceive there employees, the question is how much are they deceiving there employees. Just started Ubering in NY and my first week was $1800. In the beginning there's alot of guaranteed money with Uber….but after the 5 week honeymoon who knows. There's 4 other ride share apps in NY that ppl r driving for as well. $1700 a month in NY to rent a 2016/2017 Camry

  3. I've been a drive for Uber and Lyft for nearly 3 years… From when both of the companies came to town, it was big money… Now there's a driver on almost every corner. I am on a break and have been for almost a month now.. Not sure if I'll return since the rates are so low and for some reason, the pax are like night and day with with companies. The settlement, UBER will try everything not to pay anyone anything.. An important point I want to make is, UBER, Lyft including the pax, don't care about how many miles we've drove or anything, not even anything about us personally. All named don't care because both companies are constantly misrepresenting the pay and recruiting and the most pax are weird, angry at life and or on something which, helps both companies keep the low fares. Maybe we should do a full day and not one UBER or Lyft driver pick up not one pax and see what happens besides nothing. lol

  4. Great stuff… Glad Uber finally gets called out on their upfront, misleading income claims – exactly why we started DrivingProfitz! Funny how Uber changed their income promotions but Lyft is still actively promoting $35/hour & $1500 per week – on their website & advertising in places like Craigslist!

  5. Uber gets away with a big rip off calling us independent contractors instead of employees. Employees have the right to gas,depreciation and repair money. That's a lot of money on the table there. I will deliver food for other companies for a while for a few extra until I get my Ebay business off the ground. I'd like the sharing economy better if it actually involved sharing. Maybe one day.

  6. Okay so I got my 2016 Chevy Malibu through the Uber Xchange Leasing Program. My car payments are roughly $183 weekly? How does this effect me ? Positive & negative ? I really need to call the guy at the dealership asap. This is insane. They say said I would have unlimited mileage on my lease. And in the terms & conditions, I actually don't UHM!? WHAT!?
