Uber Eats driver says he made only 37 cents in 4 hours

1 min read

An Uber Eats driver went viral for claiming that he netted a measly $0.37 for four hours of work.

The driver, who has withheld his name citing privacy concerns, told Insider he made $30.97 in eight deliveries, but then had to fill up his tank, which cost $30.60. 

The courier’s account went viral on the Reddit page r/antiwork, where people post about suffering in the workplace. His post racked up almost 20,000 upvotes.

The Texas driver said that only three out of the eight customers he had forked over a tip.

Now, he quit driving for Uber after only a few shifts, saying it’s not worth it.

“I hope maybe some other people can save their time and money not falling for Uber Eats,” he told Insider.

“And accounting for my car’s depreciation, it cost me money to drive for Uber Eats,” he wrote in his Reddit post.

Uber told The Post this driver’s experience is not common.

“While earnings can vary based on demand and other factors, the experience described here is not typical. Thousands of people choose to partner with Uber Eats to earn extra money flexibly,” spokesperson Alix Anfang said in a statement.
