UK Supreme Court says Uber drivers are not independent contractors

"The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom has ruled that Uber drivers are legally workers, not self-employed contractors as Uber has argued in courts around the world. The ruling means that drivers in Britain and Northern Ireland are eligible for additional benefits and protections, including a minimum wage."

@packetcat The multiple french courts' decision didn't really change how things are going for gig economy workers here, sadly, let's hope it'll improve things for UK workers.
