We talked about Uber's report re: sexual assaults & why I am not prepared to give a company any cookies for overdue "transparency" without an accountability plan.— Saadia Muzaffar 🏳️🌈 سعدية (@ThisTechGirl) December 8, 2019
Transparency w/o accountability furthers violence.
Uber drivers & passengers deserve more.https://t.co/NQCLDPcSGB
Uber revealed this week that 3,000 passengers and drivers were sexually assaulted last year.— Geoffrey A. Fowler (@geoffreyfowler) December 7, 2019
So I interviewed its CEO Dara Khosrowshahi @washingtonpost to ask: When someone gets raped in an Uber, who is responsible?
His answers have it both ways: https://t.co/afwxcjImL5
On one side, Khosrowshahi says is Uber is leading the entire industry to reduce the rate of assaults to as close to zero as possible.— Geoffrey A. Fowler (@geoffreyfowler) December 7, 2019
"I think our responsibility is great, it is enormous,” he said.
Yesterday, you might have heard that Uber published data about the sexual assaults that occur on its platform. Transparency about this issue is incredibly important, but I think the way Uber went about writing its report is problematic: https://t.co/i3QCpcB1Tt— kate conger (@kateconger) December 6, 2019
Uber's safety investigators are reportedly more concerned about protecting their company from liability than protecting passengers and drivers. Misclassifying their employees as contractors is just another way to avoid responsibility. Uber must be held accountable. https://t.co/Fo43BWf4kc— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) December 7, 2019
CMS Administrator Seema Verma spent $3 million in taxpayer dollars on outside consultants to boost her brand. That likely violated appropriations law, which requires Congress to designate the funds specifically for that purpose.https://t.co/XAGOezpVZ4— Winter Storm (@AShoutOutfromMN) December 8, 2019
When Uber drivers and Task Rabbit-ers are told that abusive treatment or criminal acts are "simply bizarre, then the mistreatment of participants in the gig economy is an even bigger problem than statistics can reveal." -@AJRavenelleNYC https://t.co/Tdloj9XlqE— Katie Wells (@KatieJWells) December 9, 2019
If you can’t name the problem, how can you tame it?— WorkplaceHarassment (@AboutHarassment) December 9, 2019
If workers believe this behavior is not abusive or criminal, but simply bizarre, then the mistreatment of participants in the gig economy is an even bigger problem than statistics can reveal.https://t.co/jtD0FAm49m
