Uber Drivers Protest in Santa MonicaWednesday, June 25, 2014
Drivers who have worked for Uber, the company whose app allows
customers to request car service from their smartphone, protested Tuesday
outside the firm's offices in Santa Monica. The Teamsters union organized
the protest and drivers said their objections include concerns that they could
be assigned to less lucrative roles with the company if they do not acquire
new vehicles, according to CBS Los Angeles.
