I was wondering how much does an average driver make in various states. How much is considered good and great pay. Here in NYC region, most drivers get paid by the % based on the work that they do on weekly basis.
Our drivers make about $700/week average on 1099 (before taxes) for about average 4 trips a day and about 12 hours of work with 2-3 hours of idle time at their home. ( 8-9hours of total driving and 6 days work with 1 day off)
Once the Wedding, Prom or Holiday season shoots in, they make $200-$300/week more but when the season is gone, they all pressure me like I am suppose to maintain their high end check or something.
Sometimes, I feel I am just working for them to maintain their good checks and I hate that; what to do... So back again, how much does your drivers make and what do you consider as a good or a great check...
