Uber, Deliveroo, and Other Semi-Self Employment
If you haven’t had the luxury of McDonald's delivered straight to your house by a man on a bike then you’re missing out (unless the idea of paying 2x for lukewarm fast food isn’t your idea of appetizing). Regardless of your opinion on paying for the added convenience of delivery of an already convenient meal fast-food meal, the industry is on the rise. Uber eats and Deliveroo fills a gap that for the longest time had no reason to be filled. These fast-food restaurants had no incentive to employ delivery drivers and so they didn't. It took a third party to take up this challenge, and in doing so, created a new form of employment.
