Comment from Daniel Hayes

Driving as an independent contractor allows me the opportunity that no other part-time job can. As a father of 4, flexibility around my work schedule is CRITICAL for me to be able to uphold family values and still be able to fight to survive on this added income. The state of housing and expenses in our country these days make it so that, with a college degree and full time job within my career, we cannot survive on that income alone. I have been driving with Uber for over 4 years now and a big reason for this is due to the flexibility it brings me while still being able to earn a consistent income. Driving with Uber is ESSENTIAL for me and my family, BUT it would not be feasible for me if not for the flexibility through being an independent contractor. My wife has recently joined the platform as well because of the GREAT benefit it brings us to be able to fit in driving times around our family schedule.
