That’s the meager median wage Uber and Lyft drivers make per hour, according to a paper published by MIT’s Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research that surveyed over 1,000 drivers in the United States. 

The study made headlines this week, revealing that the cost of insurance, fuel, and car maintenance all played a major impact on why those who drive for ride-share companies do not meet minimum wage. 

Despite the compelling findings, Uber’s CEO Dara Khosrowshahi is refuting the study’s results himself, on Twitter of all places.
