Not much to say here – pathetic men, with their pathetic attitudes, petrified of bright, intelligent, strong women, from the article:
The supervisors were often arrogant, impatient, and aggressive with their expectations.
Chauvinistic, racist and homophobic attitudes were far too normal at Uber.
It was normal for guys to refer to other guys as fags when they didn’t participate in private parties where sex and drugs were involved.
It was normal for guys to openly refer to attractive female colleagues as sluts when they refused to go out with them.
Need I go on?
When I first heard about Uber I didn’t see a great disruptive idea taking form, forged from the white hot heat of innovation.
I saw this, from their website:
On a snowy Paris evening in 2008, Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp had trouble hailing a cab. So they came up with a simple idea—tap a button, get a ride.
That’s a nice, whitewashed version of events isn’t it?
In the real world, this is what happened – 2 billionaires ($14 billion combined) standing outside a nightclub, were pissed that they couldn’t get a ride.
So they looked around at all the plebeians in their silly little cars, and thought, “why can’t I simply get one of these pathetic poor people to give me ride, I’m sure they’d be happy for the paltry sum I would probably give them”.
From that, Uber was born.
From that initial idea, the very idea of ‘taking people for ride’, both actually and figuratively, what do you expect will develop?
Rich pond scum will employ pond scum that wants to be rich.
You just have to feel sorry for the decent people caught in the middle – not just the employees but the people who these little rich kids don’t consider to be employees – the drivers.
It makes me feel sick when I here of people comment that, “they got an Uber”.
You’re supporting 2 billionaires, who’s net worth is diametrically opposite to the empathy towards others.
