Uber drivers get minimum wage

Uber has insisted its fares will not rise after saying that its 70,000 UK drivers will be guaranteed a minimum wage, holiday pay and pensions.
The ride-hailing giant said drivers would earn at least the National Living Wage, or £8.72 an hour, in a move that could shake up the wider gig economy.
It comes a month after it lost a legal battle in the UK over drivers' status.
Uber said it was "turning the page" on workers' rights, but some said it had not gone far enough.
Analysts also warned the company had increased prices in California after a similar ruling and was likely to do the same in the UK.
