The Stranger: New Uber Survey Shows Most Drivers Are "Satisfied," but Doesn't Ask Them How Much They're Making

The Stranger, 12/7/2015

However, the survey doesn't answer other major questions about the working conditions for drivers—questions that are at the heart of the unionization debate in Seattle. Among them: How much are drivers making?


Working Washington, the labor-backed group pushing for the unionization bill, also takes issue with the way Uber presented today's survey data. Sage Wilson, a spokesperson for the group, says in an e-mail that the company pulled a "statistical trick" because it packaged the results of the survey based on the number of drivers rather than hours worked by those drivers.
