Challenges Faced by Uber In Its Expansion

One of the challenges that the Uber business faces is the opposition in some countries that feel that it is not well regulated. Secondly, there has been opposition to the Uber drivers by the local taxi drivers who feel threatened by the operations due to the variations in pricing. Traditionally, the local taxi drivers were more expensive compared to the low Uber ride charges. Thirdly, Uber has been criticized for not paying its drivers well. Besides, drivers are categorized as “contractors” rather than “employees” which results in them forfeiting rights and remedies provided under the employment laws.
