Allegedly, people want fair pay, better working conditions and treatment for workers.
Yet as soon as they get chance to use something like Uber, they undermine that, just to save a few pence.
Similar to when people say support British industry, but fall over themselves to go out and buy cheap, Chinese tat.
All Uber does is undercut other providers, on the backs of their workers; by not providing holiday, sick or maternity pay for people, they're bound to be able to charge less.
The argument goes that black cabs are too expensive, so cheap travel is welcome.
Which sounds good, but of course overlooks the fact that if you are using a taxi in the first place, you can afford it; most people would take the tube, bus or dare I say, walk.
Shocking, I know,
Well, let's apply this logic to say, solicitors shall we, since they too are expensive.
I reckon that if they didn't get holiday and sick pay, maternity and pensions, then instead of charging £200 an hour, I reckon we could half their pay.
As if they're going to agree to that.
In fact, you could apply this logic to any service provided by anyone.
The only difference of course is that no one is stupid enough to give up everything they've attained.
