Ride Sharing Jobs Can’t Compare to Local Employment Opportunities

In In the News, News

A growing number of young workers have turned to ride sharing apps such as Lyft and Uber to make extra money. As more research into the topic becomes available, American Labor Services would like to reinforce why workers should search for traditional jobs through our staffing agency.

“Many people have expressed regret working for Uber and Lyft, and that says something about those companies’ claims,” said Ben Kaplan, President of American Labor Services. “Workers have filed complaints because they are underpaid when you consider the cost of gas, car depreciation and maintenance, and additional auto coverage.”

Studies show that ride sharing drivers, on average, make less than the minimum wage! Here are the top reasons why you should seek employment through American Labor Services:

You Will Be Paid More

American Labor Services follows all laws that govern wages, salaries, and tips. That means you will never earn less than the minimum wage, which is $10.50 an hour in Rhode Island and $12 in Massachusetts.

Employees have Fewer Job Related Expenses

Employees should only be concerned with arriving to work on time. The cost of transportation to work, which is shared at every place of employment, is significantly less than the real cost of ferrying people in your car.

Working at a Physical Job Expands your Network

Working at a physical location will help you build a network of references. They will be able to give future employers glowing recommendations.

There Could be Room for Growth

American Labor Services has plenty of part-time and full-time opportunities that could turn to permanent positions. Our team of professionals also coach and advise employees on how to be more productive.

Work Ethic is Improved

Without someone to judge your performance, you will have a harder time developing professionally in the workplace. Improving your work ethic can eventually help employees land higher positions, which cannot occur while working for Uber or Lyft.

American Labor Services is committed to finding qualified candidates, and supporting the staffing needs of employers in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We maintain a pool of dedicated and passionate candidates that have helped local businesses and companies grow.
