Cook et al. 2018, 9–10 “All earnings are gross earnings. Costs such as gas, car depreciation, and Uber’s service fee have not been subtracted from the earnings we present.”
Hall and Krueger 2016, 21–22 “Reported earnings here are net of Uber’s fees but do not adjust for driver-partners’ expenses.”
Campbell 2017b “Uber drivers reported earning $15.68 per hour, but since drivers are also responsible for gas, maintenance and depreciation, that number is likely less.”
