Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is warning of too much government meddling with Internet-based “on-demand companies.”
He decried the federal government as “out of touch” with Americans who want a high-tech, service economy.
Rubio delivered his speech to a group of tech enthusiasts in New York City and he criticized local efforts to cap ride-sharing giant Uber and Airbnb, which helps people rent out their dwellings.
Rubio praised Germany as creating a new tax classification for independent contractors who work for a single company.
