Driving for UBER is a lot like performing those $3 mortgage inspections that “maybe” have a profit of $1.50.
The UBER driver writes: With Uber expenses, vehicle expenses, and vehicle depreciation of 15,584…not only did I not make money but I lost almost $4,000. So why did I continue to Uber? Honestly, I had no clue that it would be such a large financial loss. I figured I was at least making minimum wage. After crunching the numbers, though, I know this isn’t at all true. I wish I would have taken a part-time remote home job as I would have made over 10,000 and have 16,000 fewer miles on my car.

All of the Mortgage Order Mill pigs are dying as the economy grows. Another ten years of growth will create record lows for mortgage inspections and property preservation. More and more Mortgage Order Mills are on life support. Avoid the mortgage segment and live a happy life.

Don’t say you are quitting because the pay is low. Don’t say how rude and uncaring they behave. Be nice. Be polite as you want to get paid for the last unpaid work you completed. Find a great excuse and make it believable. Try one of these!

The average mortgage inspection pays $3 with a profit of “maybe” $1.50. Higher gasoline prices are driving more mortgage inspectors out of the mortgage segment. So who will fill their shoes? Will the mortgage segment eliminate the requirement for background checks? I expect that could happen as the economy continues to grow.
Incidentally, this reminds us of what a Beige Book last April found:
One respondent said that during a recent six-month attempt to add to staff for a new product, two-thirds of applicants for assembly line jobs were screened out before hiring via math tests and drug tests; of 400 workers hired, only 180 worked out.
One year later, with nothing changing, and nobody willing to pay more for labor, resourceful employers found a way to bypass the negative effect of labor shortages: avoid the drug tests and background checks altogether, and just hire criminals and drug dealers.
