Uber drivers 'are treated as Victorian-style sweated labour' and are forced to work 70-hour weeks to get by says Frank Field MP.
Report compiles submissions from 83 private hire drivers, working with the firm:
- Drivers at risk of taking home less than a third of the National Living Wage.
- Drivers finding it increasingly difficult to obtain work, and must therefore stay on the road for extended periods of time to make a living.
- Drivers do not have the freedom to determine their own working patterns, as Uber holds the power to remove work from them if certain conditions are not met.
