UK business minister welcomes workers' rights for Uber drivers

- Britain's business minister said on Wednesday he welcomed a decision by Uber UBER.N to give its more than 70,000 British drivers entitlements such as the minimum wage after the Silicon Valley-based company lost a Supreme Court case on worker rights.

"(It's) absolutely to be welcomed," Kwasi Kwarteng told Sky News.
