Reflecting on Uber Driving

Reflecting on Uber Driving

In these two blog posts, Marc Freccero shows both the promises and pitfalls of the gig economy. Using quotes from the two materials, I want you to write a brief 500 word essay that addresses the following questions:

1. What were Freccero’s initial expectations about being an Uber/Lyft driver?

2. How was the gig economy ‘framed’?

3. After some experience driving for Uber/Lyft, what was Freccero’s experience like? Did it match his expectations?

4. Did he manage to make a living out of being an Uber/Lyft driver?

5. Were his working conditions adequate?

6. Was this actually ‘a good hustle’?
