Uber suspends Nevada operations
After a lengthy court battle, the ride sharing service, Uber announced today it will suspend operations in Nevada. The company's official statement is below.
"It's unfortunate that Nevada is the first state in the Nation to temporarily suspend Uber - that means nearly 1000 jobs just disappeared overnight and those residents lost their ability to earn a living.
On Thanksgiving - when Nevadans should be celebrating with family, now many are worried about how they're going to pay their bills."
"We remain committed to working with Nevada's leaders to create a permanent regulatory framework that affords Nevadans the flexibility and innovation offered by Uber."
