Harry here. It’s been a while since Uber was in the news…just kidding. Actually, Uber was all over the news this week and for reasons they probably shouldn’t be too proud of. On Monday, Uber released a study that they paid for that basically said, “We are awesome.” Fortunately, I don’t think I read one news story that didn’t question the methods, results and conclusions from said study.
And on Friday, Uber sent out to every single driver nationwide a new driver-partner agreement that had a pretty shady arbitration clause buried in page 15 of the 21 page PDF. For more on that new agreement and how/why you should opt out, check out my post from yesterday. I don’t use the word ‘shady’ lightly and I never swear in my articles but yesterday I did both 🙂
But alas, there were plenty of other stories this week and RSG contributor John Ince is on top of all of them. There are a couple interesting stories out of Seattle and one of the funniest Youtube videos I’ve seen in a while. Enjoy!
