Latest Uber customer news: Uber class action lawsuit in California over driver pay to proceed

From Business Insider:

A federal court handed Uber drivers in California a small victory on Tuesday, allowing them to proceed with some parts of their class action lawsuit over employment benefits they claim the company owes them.
