Comment from Destiny Frost

I love being an independent contractor working for Uber, it is the best job I’ve ever had. It allows me to make substantial income while going to school part time. Uber also conveniently allows me to work around my school schedule. I don’t have a degree and I suffer from mental health issues and physical health issues, for example I can’t stand longer than 4 hours at a time. But with Uber I can sit for 8 or more hours a day and make substantial income that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to make because my employment options are very limited. And with Uber I can take off when I want to, and sometimes I do due to mental health issues of not feeling well. Ubers platform is just about perfect the way it is, but offering some extra support for the drivers will go a long way. Especially in a pandemic.
