What Uber Drivers Really Make (According To Their Pay Stubs)


What Uber Drivers Really Make According To Their Pay Stubs

Mohrer wouldn’t give an exact number of how many drivers make $90,000 a year, arguing that he didn’t think it was a valuable figure. But in order to make $90,000 a year, a driver would have to make $7,500 a month or approximately $1,731 a week. If a driver typically works 12-hour days, 6 days a week — a figure that doesn’t appear typical at all — he or she would need to net $24.04 an hour. If a driver worked 12-hour days, four or five days a week, the driver would need to net $36.06 or $28.85 an hour respectively. For a driver that typically works 10-hour days — a more realistic figure — and drives four to six days a week, the driver would need to make between an average of $28.85 and $43.27 an hour.

Based on our sample set of drivers who made an average of $30.23 an hour and worked an average of about 24.45 hours per week, the drivers made a weekly average of $739.12, or $3,178.23 a month — assuming they work these exact hours and times. Continuing at that very specific rate, those drivers would make about $38,434.42 a year.

So net-net, most drivers make more than minimum wage but are making nowhere near $90k a year.
