Uber is rapidly becoming one of the biggest tech companies in the world and now the company claims that drivers can make up to $74,000 a year.
Starting in San Francisco, Uber has taken off around the US and even other countries and due to increasing popularity, drivers are now making upwards of $74,000 a year.
Uber has stated that the average driver makes $74,000 a year but New York drivers have made close to $91,000 a year on average.
While the company did not release any further information on income they did state that they are creating 20,000 new jobs each month.
In fact, an outside study revealed that Uber has helped to create $2.8 billion for the US economy.
Despite Uber’s growing popularity, there has been a growing rivalry between cabs and Uber drivers.
Traditional cab drivers have to search the streets for clients and also often have to pay for an expensive permit however, Uber drivers do not.
The conditions for Uber drivers are also better and allows them to make more profits.
Many are skeptical over Uber’s hiring service however, as one report claimed that the company had hired people with criminal records and DUI’s.
Regardless of the politics, Uber is growing faster than ever before.
