Uber sym­pa­thy

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Letters -

Sym­pa­thy to tra­di­tional providers be­ing out­paced by rapidly evolv­ing new in­dus­tries such as Airbnb and Uber.

The leg­isla­tive re­quire­ments gov­ern­ing th­ese new in­dus­tries have not kept pace with the com­pli­ance re­quired of tra­di­tional op­er­a­tors. All sweet to rent out your spare room, but the le­gal mine­field of this would only be tested in the event of a tragedy.

One thing is cer­tain — when some smart per­son comes up with an Air­bank or Uber In­sur­ance com­pany, the Govern­ment will be straight out of the hole to leg­is­late them out of busi­ness to pro­tect the big end of town.
