In the interest of giving you a chance to succeed, yet holding you accountable, to allow you to make solutions, not excuses,
What responsibility do you share in all the ethical and illegal problems at Uber?
The sexual harassment
The illegal lobbying
The breaking of laws in almost every city
The privacy invasions
The stalking of reporters
The assaults on drivers that stem from asking them to work in unsafe conditions (no Uber provided dashcams or self-defense course or app based safety monitoring)
The assaults on riders that stem from inadequate background checks
The false claims Uber made to prospective drivers, likely directly enabled by the web pages you designed.
The murders of drivers that came from accepting cash
The gutting of relatively well paying taxi jobs for sub minimum wage driving jobs with Uber
The misclassification of drivers as “partners” and the bogus claims drivers are “independent businesses” even though legally they can only drive for Uber, and Uber precludes them from having any repeat customer relationship, or setting prices, or advertising their own services as a driver.
What responsibility do you share for traffic accidents like this one caused by an Uber driver that killed the person whose car he hit? https://www.geekwire.com/2017/man-dies-following-crash-uber-also-set-off-fiery-explosion-seattle-gas-station/
What responsibility do you share for enabling a company to pay drivers so low they will work 18 hour days (or longer) sleep in their car a few hours then drive the next day?
What responsibility do you share for the traffic accidents these tired overworked drivers cause?
What responsibility do you share for all the societal harms that Uber has caused that you enabled?
Because I don’t see any reflection on your part of any of this in your nice little essay on what you learned from working at Uber.
