A taxi driver in love with Uber for an unexpected reason

Was in a Uber this morning. Asked the driver “how long have you been driving for uber”. He says he’s a taxi driver and been driving for 20 years. The only reason he drives for uber is “I get a record of my revenue I can show for my tax, it’s great. It gives me a little bit to declare. The rest I drive for yellow cab and it’s all cash so I never report anything to the government. I just pay $100 to yellow cab to drive a car for 12 hours and keep all the payments in cash. Uber is just the tiny revenue part I actually do report. This works fantastic, thanks Uber.” #modernworld
