And don't miss Leila Abboud on Britain's efforts to wrangle the gig economy into shape: "Uber doesn't garner much sympathy, but you can see why it wouldn't want to pay an hourly wage to drivers sitting around waiting for passengers. Its stratospheric private valuation is based on not spending millions on employee costs.
