British Prime Minister, Theresa May, spoke out today about controversial ride-hailing app, Uber.
At a business leaders meeting at the Swiss ski resort of Davos, she said:
"We need to make sure that our employment law keeps pace with the way that technology is shaping modern working practices,
"Take the example of Uber ... a company that has got things wrong along the way, with safety issues and concerns over protections for its workers,
"The answer isn't to shut Uber down but rather to address those concerns and to establish and enforce the standards and protections that can make this technology work for customers and employees alike."
