BUDGET 2017 Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has urged the poor to become ride-sharing taxi drivers, such as Uber.

"To assist the B40 group, especially BR1M recipients to generate additional income, the government will encourage their participation as ride-sharing drivers, such as Uber drivers, particularly those who own vehicles.

"Their income could reach up to RM1,500 per month for part-time drivers working between 10 to 40 hours per week and RM4,300 if more than 40 hours per week," Najib said when tabling Budget 2017 in Parliament today.

B40 refers to the bottom 40 percent of income earners.
