As a consistent critic of the current taxi regime in Vancouver, my immediate reaction to hearing that Uber wants to open in our city was applause. However, it seems that Uber is not a good employer. In fact, they appear to be predatory employers with their eye solely on the bottom line.
I hope that all current taxi drivers here read “Against Sharing” before signing up. There is clearly major discontent among Uber drivers in many American cities, while the company grows its value like Topsy.
Do we really need more bottom-feeding here? Better that the City reduce the current taxi shortage by doubling and tripling the number of legal cabs in Vancouver.
