How to Verify Income of Newly Self-Employed Ride-Hailing Service Drivers
Explosive growth in ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft are attracting more and more drivers. These drivers earn extra income with the benefit of working flexible hours. According to recent research by JPMorgan Chase Institute, from late 2013 to this spring, the number of households earning income from transportation-related apps has grown 20 times. And a separate study Uber released in late 2016 showed that while the number of drivers on the app had grown, average hourly earnings remained fairly stable at about $20 an hour from mid-2014 to the end of 2015.
