Journalist Goes Undercover as Uber Driver, Earnings after 100 Trips…

A Philadelphia journalist recently went undercover as an Uber driver to determine how much she could earn. She completed about 100 trips to see if she could truly make the median wage (as reported by Uber) of $90,000 per year for UberX drivers in NYC. We shot down that figure last August – see How Much Money You Can Really Earn As An Uber Driver…not much unless driving 60 hours a week.

Anyway, check out her experiment over at Business Insider here.

  1. I don’t understand why Uber keeps making these outlandish claims. Their target drivers are people who have jobs, but drive for a little extra cash. Touting huge numbers makes Uber sound stupid for no reason
