Meet the woman who won’t give up her phone to get an Uber
JUANA ROSE, 27, was born in a poor rural area of rural Nigeria.
She got her first job at a grocery store, and it was in the middle of the day when she received a call from her manager.
She told him she was out of work and he promised to take her to a car service.
“The manager was kind of angry.
He told me, ‘I’ll give you one minute,’ and then he took me to the car,” Rose says.
They took her to the service station and then the driver came back to say he couldn’t pick her up because there was a bus waiting.
After her first few trips with Uber, Rose noticed that some drivers were not willing to pay for a ride, and she started using her Uber account to pay them. “
She had no idea she was being recorded.
After her first few trips with Uber, Rose noticed that some drivers were not willing to pay for a ride, and she started using her Uber account to pay them.
As Rose got more comfortable with the service, she found she was making more money than she was paying.
ROSE’S BUSINESS ROAD When Rose met the Uber driver in 2015, she was in a different state.
She was in her early 30s, and her parents were divorced.
When she got her driver’s license, she went to a job interview and he offered her a job as a cashier at a convenience store in her hometown.
At first, Rose had no plans of taking it, and when the cashier job came up, she did not think twice about it.
But Rose was worried that the store would close, and so she took her chances.
Her first day there, she received $15.99 per day, or $2.70 an hour.
That was far less than the $7.50 an hour she was working for as a waitress in her city.
Rose also found herself working on the weekend, working 10-hour shifts and getting little sleep.
She also did not know how to make her own coffee.
But after six months with the store, Rose realized that she could make more money by working at the convenience store instead.
On top of the $15 an hour, Rose was earning $20.88 an hour after taxes, making $20,000 in the first six months.
She had never worked a day in her life.
In the end, the $2 an hour paid by Uber paid her rent for three years.
She used the money she earned to help pay off her student loans.
The other drivers Rose worked with also weren’t willing to give up their phones.
Once she found out that Uber was tracking her, she started looking for a new job.
She quit her job and enrolled in a job with Uber and was able to earn $12 an hour for two months, she says.
Rose had enough money to buy a house, rent an apartment and buy a car, but it was not enough.
I wanted to do something that I was passionate about and I wanted to make a difference, she said.
Now, she works as a part-time cashier for a convenience food store in downtown Oklahoma City.
The driver she used to work with didn’t want to pay her anymore.
He wanted to keep paying her.
Drivers who don’t agree with Uber’s policies and practices are not welcome on the platform, but the drivers Rose works with say that drivers who are willing to do the right thing by drivers are welcome to remain.
That means Rose is now looking for other job opportunities and says she is open to working in a restaurant.
