Before Uber existed, how many people got towncars during floods?
They shirk overhead costs by not having employees or maintaining a fleet. They arrogantly expect labor (and equipment!) to just come and go as the market bears. It seems there's already been a strike of Uber drivers demanding to become employees with defined benefits and salaries.
What these detractors don’t seem to understand is that the alternative to higher prices is not simply lower prices. It is lower prices and a shortage. (In the graph below, the shortage would be equivalent to the distance between Q1 and Q3.)
