A London employment tribunal ruled that its drivers were workers, rather than self-employed. It meant drivers would be entitled to holiday pay, paid rest breaks and the national minimum wage.China's government is building an omnipotent "social credit" system that is meant to rate each citizen's trustworthiness.
