The Drama Behind Uber’s Executives

By on December 15, 2014

Over the past few weeks it seems that Uber is constantly in the news, and for all the wrong reasons. With swirling allegations of spying on its users, assaults by Uber drivers, a lackluster background check process and now Ubers executives are engaging in war in their own backyard.

Both Los Angeles and San Francisco (the home of Uber) have announced they are suing Uber on the grounds of misleading business practices and charging their customers bogus fees.

The popular car service charges riders who order a UberX a $1 “Safe Rides Fee,” which they state covers the company’s background checks of its drivers. The district attorneys in LA and SF are having none of it pointing to an increasing number of incidents involving Uber drivers who “passed” the background check, such as the death of a six-year-old girl last December.

Los Angeles and San Francisco are just two of the many cities and countries that are looking to take on Uber in the court room. If we had to make a guess, Uber will continue to power through it.
