Uber does U-turn, gives UK drivers living wage, holiday pay, and pension

Uber's 70,000 UK drivers will now be guaranteed the National Living Wage, in addition to holiday pay and pension. 
The move comes after Uber lost its final appeal in the UK Supreme Court in February, which ruled that the company's drivers should be classed as workers and not as self-employed. 
Writing in the Evening Standard , Uber's chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi said the ride-hailing app was "turning a page." 
"Following last month’s UK Supreme Court ruling, we could have continued to dispute drivers’ rights to any of these protections in court," wrote Khosrowshahi. "Instead, we have decided to turn the page. Beginning today, Uber drivers in the UK will be treated as workers." Read more... More about Uber , Tech , and Transportation
