  1. More than 1 million people in Taiwan have downloaded the ride-hailing app, but the government is cracking down
    Until last week, Owen Lee made good earnings working overtime as an Uber driver in Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, to boost his modest monthly salary as a marketing agent for a restaurant website.

    By driving over 150 hours a month, Lee, 28, could make up to $1,250 — roughly two-thirds of his regular salary — giving him disposable income for travel and savings for the first time.

    But on Friday, he abruptly gave it up after the Taiwanese government not only introduced some of the largest fines against Uber in the world, but also launched financial rewards for anyone who turns drivers in.
