Uber Starts Recruiting Drivers in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO - Uber, the popular ride-sharing service that has clashed with taxi drivers around the world, has started recruiting drivers in Uruguay via Twitter.

The company posted a message that says "¿Querés ser tu propio jefe manejando con Uber?" (Do You Want to Be Your Own Boss Driving with Uber?) on the social networking site.

The U.S.-based company has not revealed when it plans to start providing service via its ride-sharing app in the South American country, but it has created an application form for individuals interested in working as drivers.

The company's Web site touts the fact that drivers enjoy flexible hours and "very good money working independently."

Uber has faced opposition in cities around the world from taxi drivers, who have staged protests as the ride-sharing company expands globally.

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff weighed in on Uber in September, saying that the ride-sharing service "takes work away from many people."

Uber has faced lawsuits and protests since entering Brazil, where the courts have still not ruled on the service's legality.

Last week, about 100 taxi drivers staged a protest against Uber in Bogota, demanding that the Colombian government stop the company's "illegal" operation.
