UK Supreme Court rules Uber drivers are workers

UK’s Supreme Court has ruled that Uber drivers in the country should be classed as ’workers’ and not self-employed. The ruling stands to threaten Uber’s business model and holds broader implications for the gig economy. This entitles Uber drivers to benefits such as paid holidays and minimum wage. Uber, which has 65,000 active drivers in the UK, argued that drivers were independent contractors.

Which means the drivers will be screwed over... if uber even maintains a base of operation there it will be small regulated branches only within larger population areas.. way to go UK

Hopefully it means less undocumented drivers sharing their cousins cars and driving young ladies home at night

That's unfortunate news for the UK. I hope Uber doesn't pull out of the country over this because life is certainly better with the service than without. Any time the government intervenes in the free exchange of job/gig and pay, society loses. Now it will cost unnecessarily more because the UK govt wants its cut. If I was Uber I'd probably pull out to give a middle finger to these bureaucrats. Not worth dealing with this BS
