The Prop 22 pay study is out! What we learned was eye-opening; when we look at all the time spent on the road, and all the expenses that drivers pay, along with the many benefits we miss out on as misclassified contractors, we only make on average $6.20 an hour!
In October 2021, over 50 RDU drivers signed up to independently collect their driving data and test what the earnings ACTUALLY were under Prop 22. Through Drivers Seat Co-op - an app that ran simultaneously with the driver app - drivers collected real-time data on when they accepted a ride, where they picked riders up, where they were dropped off, how many hours they worked, and how many miles they drove. Over the period of a month, data was collected on 12,000+ rides across the entire state; from the Bay Area, to the Central Valley, to the Southlands.
