I don't think you guys in the UK understand how great uber is in the US, especially in big cities, truly revolutionary. Now it is under fire from not only hipster haven's and fake cities like Austin Tx and Portland Or, but also NYC now.
I have come to feel strongly that the greatest service I can still render to my fellow men would be that I could make the speakers and writers among them thoroughly ashamed ever again to employ the term 'social justice'.

It’s been having issues here as well in terms of the employment status of its drivers. Anyone with half a brain can see they’re not workers or employees but courts have ruled that they’re workers and so entitled to various worker ‘rights’.
