Government Partners With Uber To Promote Micro-entrepreneurship

Uber has partnered with the Union Ministry of Labour and Employment which will enable people who want to drive with Uber to sign up via the National Career Service online portal–a one stop shop to connect those looking for work with career counselors, placement organizations and employers.

The Ministry of Labor and Employment wants to encourage micro-entrepreneurship through technology platforms like Uber.

Aiming to improve job quality, Uber is offering no schedule to its employees. You work when you want to, not when an employer tells you to.

To help promote these opportunities it will create a new ‘Start Your Own Business’ page on its website that will market these opportunities.

Shankar Aggarwal, Secretary, Ministry of Labour and Employment said, “We are pleased to partner with Uber to help people across India to become micro entrepreneurs as there is tremendous need for this kind of independent, flexible work.”
