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’?
