Nice for scheduling, not for compensation.
Lyft Driver (Current Employee) – Los Angeles County, CA – March 5, 2017
Working for Lyft is amazing in the respect that you can literally make money any time you want, for as long as you want. Only downside is that it takes more than an average working day (8 hours) to make a decent daily wage.
Considering that Lyft takes 20% for their fees, and depending on what tax bracket you fall in to:
Example: daily earnings of $100: Lyft takes $20, Gov. takes 15% (In my case), or $12, you're left with $68 from your original $100, not including tips, which can be $0.
Your daily earnings might not seem worth it unless you drive 9 or 10 + hours a day.
Poor compensation for number of hours.
