A interesting segment on Uber's rapid growth. I've seen a few FB friends posting about Uber--some hate it, some love it. You're going to use the service that works best for you. I don't like it because I love putting out my hand and hailing a taxi. And because unlike many younger folks, I don't like to have my head buried in a phone. OK--and because men from faraway lands who can't speak english are more likely to get confused enough to let me blow them for the fare. But when you take away whether you like the service to not, the bigger debate is over how much you feel jobs should be regulated. Uber doesn't offer it's drivers insurance and the jobs are part time. That's the quality of many of the jobs added under Obama. Does working less for less $ seem like a good trend to you?
