"Working for Uber allows me afford my own place and most importantly spending more time with my son. I work a full time job and having Uber as a part time jobs really make a different in my life. Finding a part time that fits with your family and work is not easy. With Uber, I able to work the later shift 9pm to 3am and not give any of my time with my son. I only have him 3 times a week. So when he is asleep, off I go driving to make the extra money that I would need to pay my rent ..cable..electricity. I'm able to watch him play his basketball games on the weekends since Uber schedule is so flexible. Other part time jobs I worked required me to work on weekend."
