Today Uber celebrated that they had provided 20,000 Australians with extra work
Uber notified its customers and partners with the following message:
"Today we are celebrating empowering 20,000 Australians with the opportunity to access extra work whenever they want, and extra money whenever they need it.
Your decision to embrace ridesharing is giving people a new way to work, on their terms, and in doing so boosting the incomes of thousands of Australian families who need it most.
The economic impact in such a short space of time is unprecedented. In 2015, over $45 million went back into the local economies of 45 metropolitan suburbs suffering from some of the highest rates of unemployment in the country.
Thank you for your help in economically empowering 20,000 Australians.
In an era of stagnant wages and rising costs of living, ridesharing gives people an opportunity to earn additional income, bridge gaps in work, and provide for their family, all with the flexibility to work when, where and how they want.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support.
The team at Uber Australia"
