My direct attack on Travis Kalanick in the blog Uber exploitation and slave labour are the future says CityAM produced this comment from C. Hones.
Clearly a warning! and what d’ya know, today an Uber lobbyist popped up on twitter, @NeilRetail busily telling Tory Ed Vaizey and MP Matt Hancock that all our concerns are lies, including assaults on women and regs. being about customer safety.
He sneered at regs, and wanted to know the point of the five minute wait – that’s the one they always go for. Was happy to give him the answer here! There are solid reasons for the five minute waiting period, click on this sentence.
So great news! Uber are hitting the panic button and they are wheeling in Uberlouts like @NeilRetail to minimise rapes, mentally ill drivers who recently saw demons and to deny that paying Uber drivers £1.47 below minimum wage and then taking 25% is slave wages.
I’m sure @NeilRetail, who showed utter disdain for Uber drivers and customer safety, is the first of many. They don’t stand a chance, we have the truth on our side. What a way to make a living! Lying for Uber! They must be proud, eh?
Update: Uber has an army of 161 lobbyists and they are crushing regulators, says The Verge. In the US, they are targeting politicians and that is the way they leapfrog regulators. They also threaten smear campaigns! Nice guys!
