The main reasons for the pro-Uber argument seem to be the loss of ’employment’ for some of its drivers, and the convenience, affordability, and (debatable) safety for passengers. So people are really arguing for jobs and good public transport. Is Uber the best avenue for that? I don’t think so. They run at a huge loss in order to dominate the market, and once that happens prices will go up, and eventually jobs will go.
