Self-driving cars were expected to eliminate millions of driving jobs over the next few years but Uber just fired 100 self-driving operators (reported by Quartz.com). The Uber self-driving operators can re-apply for jobs in Uber. In theory, they could apply as Uber drivers.
Uber is creating 55 mission specialist positions who will provide more information to self-driving car developers.
Perhaps the main rule is that no jobs are not safe at Uber. It is like characters on Game of Thrones. No one is really safe.
Game of Thrones shows a world which is disfunctional, hard and inhumane.
Uber seems to have similar flaws and problems with execution.
