MEP Nicola Danti : the sharing economy is changing the rules of the game
Event date: 09/11/2016
The sharing economy is turning consumers into entrepreneurs at the tap of a smartphone. But should online platforms such as Airbnb, Uber and Deliveroo be treated like traditional companies when it comes to paying taxes, hiring workers or ensuring health and safety standards? And should the EU step in to set the rules of the new game? Italian MEP Nicola Danti (S&D) thinks so. After organising a workshop with experts on the issue, he will be preparing a report for the European Parliament. He spoke with EuroparlTV about it.
