Subsidising billionaires simulating the net incomes of uberx drivers in Australia
This research report considers the future trajectory of work in Australia’s broader transportation industry. It takes into account the change and disruption that will occur across the sector as a result of a number of drivers – including, but not limited to, technological innovation. Transportation is a crucial part of the Australian economy, and generates significant spill-over benefits that are shared across all sectors and regions. Transportation is also an important employer, occupying some 625,000 Australians and generating above-average earnings. However, work in this sector is poised for dramatic change in the years ahead. It is the responsibility of all stakeholders in transportation to prepare for that change – to manage it, minimise its costs, and maximise its benefits.
