I used to think that multicab drivers earn only the minimum wage because the route rates are very cheap. But a friend convinced me to try it because the earnings are pretty good. So I did and, to my surprise, they actually are. I first started small, experimenting with routes and times to get the most passengers. And as I developed my strategy, I started earning even more. Hard work does pay off. Today, I not only have enough for my daily needs, but enough money to spend on other things to make me happy.
