Uber is a great idea and a great company. I moved here about 6 months ago, and it was very hard for me to find a job cause I'm not billigual. But uber gave me a chance, and I'm very grateful. I started with uber like three weeks before Christmas, I just had a baby, and all my bills were behind. I was able to do for my family for Christmas and catch up on my bills. Working with uber, I'm my own boss, I can work for myself and spend time with my family. Uber creates jobs, and jobs stimulate the economy. Without uber, I might be homeless, or living off government assistance. I'm working with uber full time, and I'm very grateful it allows be to take care of my family, meet a lot of successful people, and gives me a chance to dream and become successful. Thankyou uber."
