Uber has changed my life in a very positive way. I have triplet boys who just enrolled into college last fall, I had lost my job of 14 years, and had to find another job and fast, when Uber presented itself, I thought it was too good to be true.. Since then, we've been able to fund my sons schooling. My wife is a school teacher and doesn't make much money, so this job with Uber is critical for my entire family. [REDACTED] I thank God all the time for this wonderful opportunity, if it were to be taken away, my entire family would be devastated. I feel good for the service I provide and take this job VERY serious!
