Uber is the reason I can keep working where I want to work. I used to live right next to a drug store in a great area, the customer base is almost always friendly and I genuinely enjoy being a shift manager there. I had to move about thirty minutes from the location, and without uber, I wouldn't be able to even get to work because there are no bus stops near my store. I depend on uber for income, and as a college student, obviously that is incredibly important.
