That figure is after Uber’s service fees. They don’t dispute the ~$3.50 per hour in other costs claimed in the MIT study, so it would be ~$15.50 per hour after service fees and other costs. Given this survey finds $13.04 per hour after costs and correcting MIT’s error, your suggestion that they cut incomes by 40% is not correct.
