Uber to pay $20M for misleading drivers

Uber will pay fine for misleading drivers on income potential.

(CNN) – Uber will pay $20-million to settle a lawsuit with the Federal Trade Commission.

The FTC said Uber made false and misleading statements about how much drivers could earn.

According to the complaint, Uber claimed drivers could make more than $90,000 a year in New York and,  more than $74,000 in San Francisco.

The FTC says less than 10% of the drivers earned that much money.

Uber is also accused of making false “unlimited mileage” claims in its leasing program.

The $20-million will be used to pay back affected drivers across the country.
