Er, no. Looks like he'll still have a job at the end of this, and be earning more than minimum wage. The T&Cs might change a bit, and I'm sure with a bit of negotiation, like signing some waiver about tripping up over canines, the working from home thing can be solved by the adults involved.

As for this putting Uber drivers on the street, how? Uber still need drivers. It changes their T&Cs, but not the fact that Uber still need a meat sack at the wheel. Uber will screw those drivers over in an instant if they perfect autonomous driving anyway, so please stop defending Uber.
