Uber driver says wages work out to about $8 an hour Raphael Assaf says he picked up 130 fares and made just over $500 in two weeks Raph   Assaf   signed   up   to   drive   with   Uber   a   couple   of   weeks   ago,   attracted   by   the independence   of   the   job,   and   his   interest   in   learning   more   about   the   controversial   ride- booking company. "Something   didn't   sit   right   with   me,"   said   Assaf,   a   film   director   who   recently   moved   to Ottawa   from   British   Columbia.   "They   are   promoting   paying   $20,   $30s   an   hour   versus   fares being so low." Assaf   calculated   that   over   the   past   two   weeks   he's   worked   40   hours,   picked   up   130   fares and made a little over $500. He   estimates   that   after   his   car   payment   and   gas,   he's   actually   been   working   for   less   than $8 an hour. Read more
