Uber driver earned less than minimum wage, tribunal told
James Farrar claims that one month in 2015 he earned little more than £5 an hour and feared repercussions if he cancelled a job
An Uber driver who says he earned less than the minimum wage has told a tribunal about the “tremendous pressure” he was put under to work long hours and accept jobs, and the “repercussions” he faced from the company if he cancelled a pick-up.
James Farrar, a driver with the firm since December 2014, said some months he had earned little more than £5 an hour and that “Uber control me very, very carefully”.
