Uber Low Pay Scrapes The Minimum Wage Level

Enough consensus around what Uber drivers earn that we should dispense with the myth that driving for Uber is a lucrative job. Uber is another facet of the low-wage economy, not a modern American dream. (Wikimedia Commons photo by Alexander Torrenegra)

The question of how much Uber drivers make per hour is always ripe for discussion.

The latest contribution to the debate comes from the Economic Policy Institute (EPI), a pro-labor think tank. On May 15, EPI released a report finding Uber drivers earn $11.77 an hour after Uber’s commission and expenses, and $10.87 an hour adjusted for the extra contributions that independent contractors make toward Medicare and social security. That puts Uber drivers solidly in the lowest fifth of American earners.
