    I don’t see that much money earning In Calgary Uber drivers maybe a thousand drivers From 2- 3 drivers can earn that much this means 00.001 % drivers. I work with them almost 4 years and beginning from the last 2 years way slow I usually spend 40-60 hours a week I don’t make that much money because they hiring so much more than the city needs drivers. There is nothing to do on the road the drivers are more than riders that’s why I am planning to leave them and find a better job and make a better idea.
