I have completed 1,513 rides for Uber in Cincinnati. While I enjoy the rider interaction very much, Uber misleads drivers about how much you can make as a driver, and they do not value the drivers they "partner" with. The reason that they are aggressively looking for drivers is that the average age tenure of a driver is less than 30 days. People going fire out that their earnings" after deducting vehicle cost and Uber's take (you receive 80% of the gross fare- Uber gets 20%) result in an effective hourly wage of around $7.00 per hour. If they were a reputable employer, you wouldn't see 100 listings on here. Uber underplays and uses people.
I have not had any issues with Uber at all. They are very supportive and informative.
I have been driving for UBER for over six months now and found the job on RetirementJobs.com. I know this company is aggressively looking to hire pre-retirees and retirees. They treat everyone the same - regardless of age! I like the ability to set my own hours and be my own boss. This is a great retirement job for me.
During the first round of layoffs in the start of the financial crisis approximately 90% of those laid off were over 40. Continued layoffs followed again targeting the older staff members
They fire everyone over 50 systematically. During the first round of layoffs in the start of the financial crisis approximately 90% of those laid off were over 40. Continued layoffs followed again targeting the older staff members.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
