Uber, per la Ue deve avere licenze come taxi e ncc

Finally a good news for fair employment in Europe! Uber is declared as a service equal to taxis and, therefore, subject to the same requirements and licenses, according to Maciej Szpunar, AG at the EUCJ after a lawsuit against Uber in Spain.

Once and for all, Uber is not a Tech commpany at all! It’s a transport commpany, therfore subject to its authorities and regulation.

Uber responds to critics with British benefit package for drivers

The show must go, so Uer announces that it preps up to contribute to injury and illness of its “partners” (technically “employees”, according to a British tribunal that ruled on this matter).

Too bad that:
– this won’t be available unless you’ve already had at least 500 rides,
– it won’t cover retirement contributions, and
– it doesn’t clearly say how much will Uber contribute.
