Sound of a very very small violin

Uber et al are essentially cuckoos - parasitically exploiting society. They rely on the desperation of workers in a post-industrial insecure labour market, which is bad enough, but they also expect the taxpayer to make up the difference in their poverty wages, and to build the roads they drive on and maintain the infrastructure of the internet that enables them. And the proportion of 'I drive because I like the flexibility' to 'I lost my job and this was all i could find' is about the same as 'I was born in poverty and am a self made millionaire' to 'Daddy sent me to Eton and I got a job in Uncles' hedge fund'
