ValueMags researchers found that the number of new drivers has more than doubled every 6 months for the last two years. Most of that exponential growth has come from the cheaper UberX service, a service this class would likely use. They also found that 38% of Uber drivers have no other job, 31% have a full-time job elsewhere, and 30% have another part-time job. Uber service is a large contributor to income for North American households. Most importantly, 91% of Uber drivers do their job to earn a higher income and support themselves and families. Thus, it is very easy to argue why Uber has contributed not only to the North American economy, but also the international economy as it has become a global service offered in big cities around the world like Paris, Milan, and Munich.
