Uber will pay $20 million in lawsuit over driver pay claims

Uber has used promises of good pay and flexible hours to attract drivers to its growing ride-hail service. Now, it says it is willing to spend millions to settle a lawsuit with a federal agency over allegations it exaggerated just how much people could make by driving for the ride-hail service.

The heart of the claims: The Federal Trade Commission says Uber offered inflated hourly earning figures for potential drivers. Uber doesn't admit or deny the activities alleged in the lawsuit.
