Uber's Big Lie Jacobin magazine

Uber has been given free rein to violate basic employment laws with impunity. We have to stop them.
er has a reputation for many things: a sexist corporate culture, evading legal authorities at home and abroad, bribery of foreign officials, paying hush money to hackers, and corporate espionage.
 Uberís most undeserved reputation is that itís a technology company. Itís not.
Misclassifying drivers as independent contractors and not employees allows Uber to weasel out of billions of dollars in costs, such as paying a minimum wage or overtime, providing health benefits, making Social Security and unemployment fund contributions, or paying payroll taxes.
