neffa saidUber has been critised all over Europe , and also in the U.S as well as in Australia ..
Competition is always good for customers , but it have been proved many times that Uber isn't as good as it seems .
As one of my mate in the U.S told me (after using them for a while ) , Uber only is a glorified Yellow cab ...
Now when it comes to politicians , they only see what is good for them ...hahaha
The problem with uber is that refuse to play by the rules of cab companies. I disagree with those rules and support disruption of the cab industry bu uber is not playing fair.
What rules are you talking about?
Competition only works to drive innovation when everyone plays the same game. Uber has gotten around the rules by effectively disbanded cab service, turning it into a part-time (afterwork) job for the middle class, from what once was a low-skill full time job for the poor.
They are making it such that to enter the taxi field, you need to have a college degree (or some other source of income) to be able to afford a car. That's not innovation. That's not job creation. That's the opposite. The same people who cheer Uber and Lyft, are the same ones that yell at the poor to stop being lazy, giving no consideration to where their jobs may have vanished.
Uber is a serious problem, and until job competition is made ruly again (likely with reforms to BOTH the cab and the car sharing systems) we will continue to send income once going to poor communities who desperately need unskilled work, into the middle class, who don't need it.
