Uber: Not So Disruptive?
Uber, one of the reigning kings of transportation network companies (TNCs), was supposed to disrupt a lot of things, from the way we get to and fro to the way many of us work. But a new report says that second part simply isn’t happening.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released a report that says fewer people are working for themselves than they were a decade ago. That’s the reverse of what was supposed to be the Uber effect of a gig economy, in which people would pop from contracted job to contracted job—one of which was supposed to be driving for TNCs.
It also might mean TNCs don’t employ as many drivers as was once thought. Read the whole report here.
