My take on this is that the minimum wage for anyone coming to the UK should be set at 30k for a single person.

Id also want the worker to pay their tax a year in front.

I also want a non Brits photo and bio ID in place. Non brits must carry Id and present it in all interactions with the states - police, nhs, public services.

Uber driver Abdurzak Hadi says that as he drives in central London from Monday to Friday, he will be almost £60 a week worse off.

"I will be punished for coming to work. This is a tax on poor drivers," says Mr Hadi.

The natives are much more than 60/w worse off due to the costs imposed by useless fuckers like Aburzak.

The other issue I have with having mainly foreign drivers driving people around is whether their driving ability and knowledge of roads and traffic in large conurbations is sufficient and safe. 

Im betting very few checks are done

Yep, they could sit in separate parts of restaurants too.

I got in a taxi driven by some kind of Asian the other day. Top to bottom, attached to the windscreen and then the centre console, he had a satnav, the phone with his taxi app, his camera recording thing, a large touchscreen head unit, then a tablet showing some kind of BBC nature documentary, the soundtrack of which was being played out loudly through the speakers. Commensurate wiring ran backwards and forwards. Any kind of rape attempt would have ended in terminal entanglement for both of us.

I felt very safe.

The legal system has to have a way to ignore 'indirect discrimination' where legislation is necessary and where there isn't any actual discrimination in the law or the freedom of different races to partake in the 'problem area'.

[IMO, these people are abusing the discrimination laws in their cry of 'discrimination!'; they should be ashamed of themselves]

It's bizarre.

The Independent Workers of Great Britain is fighting the congestion charge on UBER drivers because most UBER driver's are from ethnic groups. Should they not have been fighting for ethnic Brits and keeping hordes of cheap labour out of Britain?

I think the argument is that the traditional Black Cabs are exempt. However these black cabs seem to know where they are going.

From its web site it sounds like a racist union.

We are the IWGB.

We are the leading union for precarious workers. We are migrants, we are the so-called "gig economy", we are foster care workers. We are the IWGB

 

.

Quote

The Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain (IWGB) is a new and dynamic union which represents mainly low paid migrant workers, such as outsourced cleaners and security guards, workers in the so-called “gig economy”, such as bicycle couriers and Uber drivers, and foster care workers. The IWGB specializes in representing sections of the workforce which have traditionally been non-unionised and under-represented.

There has always been gig economy jobs. It suits some people better than regular employment. Todays problem is that there isn't enough regular jobs available and many people are doing gig jobs when they'd much prefer regular employment.

Taxi work doesn't suit an hourly rate. The passengers end up paying more and the better drivers earn less.

Seems to all have gone a bit quiet on the workers rights for the gig economy thing. Not really sure how it was going to work as were all self-employed business people, like plumbers, going to get paid holidays and their income made up to min wage if they took on unprofitable work/jobs.
