Steven Hill thinks Uber has shaken up the taxi industry — or Big Taxi, as Hill calls it – in a way that’s been beneficial to many consumers.

And that’s about the nicest thing Hill has to say about the San Francisco-based transportation network company (TNC).

Otherwise, Hill  — who has worked at the think tank New America Foundation and written a book about the so-called sharing economy — sees Uber as a rule-breaking, tax-dodging, labor-exploiting, market-manipulating, law-unto-itself capitalist behemoth.
