In an email sent a few hours ago, Uber's Queensland team stated that they will be "committed to creating 20,000 new jobs in Australia in 2015."

This release went on to ensure customers that all patrons will be safe, claiming that "each of these new jobs will be filled by people who have passed rigorous criminal and driving history background checks, who are fully insured, and who are seeking to earn a flexible income to support their families," as there have been some major concerns in the past as to how safe Uber drivers really are.

20,000 jobs in any industry is certainly not a small task. Especially when you consider that there are only approximately 23,000 Taxi drivers employed as a whole in Australia's most populated state - New South Wales.
