Vehicle Costs May Put Some Uber and Lyft Drivers in the Red
â€The ride-sharing drivers earn just $3.37 per hour on average, according to an MIT study.
I have said for a long time that the same people who object to treatment of workers in remote countries making phones, garments et al â€¦ are generally the self same people who love the convenience of â€˜theirâ€™ Uber.
Case In Point â€¦ disasters.
We seem to worry more about issues that are close to home far more than remote ones â€¦ 2 dead in storm floods in the next state over is so much more worrying than 200 dead in Pakistan floods â€¦ yet exploitation of those people in Pakistan by the garment industry hits the news cycle regularly â€¦ exploitation of our own countrymen in the so called â€˜sharing economyâ€™ â€¦ that we donâ€™t hear about too much at all.
