Are you currently working 40 or more hours for the same company but are considered a part time employee by the company to avoid paying benefits?

Yep. As an Uber driver I work over 60 hours per week sometimes, and usually take home a lot less than a minimum wage worker makes doing 40. And they consider us contractors, not employees, so we don't get benefits either.

Is there some reason why you stay with that job?

It's the only job I could get. I've been applying to every job I can find for over 2 years, and Uber is the only place that would take me. If I quit, then I'm back to no income at all.

Very understandable. I hope your job search turns up something soon.
