The True Cost of Prop 1 for Austinites: $29M, Jobs, Funding and Lives
Courtney Powell

Uber paid how much to have this article placed?

I stopped reading after …paid $19 an hour... That’s revenue, not take-home after costs like fuel. All the graphs and charts and tweets. Surely this is astroturfing, the practice of faking grassroots support on social media.

The people of Austin would presumably welcome back an Uber or Lyft that agreed to play by the rules and didn’t attempt to coerce the city government into conceding their sovereignty. Go back to your corporate masters and tell them a city of smart folks finally said, “No!”

Like what you read? Give Kurt Guntheroth a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
