Uber’s executive chief is arguing that his company needs to be able to provide its drivers with more money and better safety to keep them on the road.
Speaking to reporters Thursday, Uber’s Chief Executive Officer Travis Kalanick argued that Uber’s current funding needs to come from outside sources like the state of California.
The California state government has been slow to approve funding for Uber.
Kalanik said that the state’s approval process has been extremely slow, and he would not be surprised if they never approve it again.
Uber has been in trouble for decades because it has been unable to compete in the transportation sector.
That was a problem for Uber when it was founded in 2008, and Kalanicks view of the industry is one that sees the company as a technology company, not a transportation company.
He also said that Uber needs to get more involved in California’s transportation system, and that the company has already started doing that.
Uber is currently under a lawsuit in California over its inability to pay drivers, which is part of a broader issue in the state.
The company has been fighting for $1.6 billion in damages from the state over the issue, and the company’s Chief Financial Officer, Anthony Levandowski, was recently arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit wire fraud.
