"Uber for Employment"?

Uber Works will let companies recruit temporary workers such as waiters or security guards for events, the Financial Times reports.

The news: Uber has been working on the venture over the last several months in Chicago, following an earlier trial in Los Angeles, and is starting to ramp up recruitment. Job adverts seek candidates with a “strong interest in the on-demand labor space” able to be “on call when the product is busiest (often nights, weekends, and holidays)”. It is unclear how soon Uber Works could launch.

    Yay!  another "opportunity" for Uber to get people to work, while they reap huge profits and provide no benefits. Cashier at BK call in sick?  Don't worry, Uber will get a person right to you if you pay Uber the same $15 /hr you pay fast food workers, but Uber will take 50% and pay the desperateperson below minimum wage to work fast food.  (Like UberEats, they'll probably also demand a certain percentage of sales too)

    Do Uber drivers make good money?  No, Uber takes 35-65% and the drivers eats all costs.

    Do UberEats delivery people make good money?  No, they're amongst the worst paid delivery people.

    Who in their right mind believes that this will be any different?

    Uber Works sounds like WeWorks, a rental offices for startups.
