Again, you appear to have fallen for the (largely baseless) media narrative that people drive for Uber as some sort of “measure of last resort,” and wouldn’t otherwise do so if they weren’t desperate for money. This assumption is, well, bullshit. I’m guessing you’re unaware that a majority of Uber drivers are already employed in full-time-salaried positions (ditto Lyft), and drive for them mainly on nights and weekends when they have the highest probability of generating surge-priced fares.
