What Uber's Bad Headlines Mean For The Gig Economy

Uber has been in the headlines a lot lately, and not for good reasons.There was the Saturday rampage by an Uber driver in Kalamazoo that killed six. The company has also been slashing its rates, including a 15 percent reduction in New York City last month that sparked protests from drivers. It’s also fighting unionization of drivers, most recently in Seattle.

Here & Now‘s Meghna Chakrabarti looks at what is next for Uber and the gig economy with Rana Foroohar, assistant managing editor for business and economics at Time in New York.
