While taxi drivers strike to protest Donald Trump’s ban on Muslims, Africans and Middle Easterners from seven different countries, Uber jumped in to render the protest futile.
Uber CEO Travis Kalanick is a member of President Trump’s economic advisory group and has repeatedly pledged to work with the president to solve issues related to urban mobility, so it was not shocking to see Uber fighting against those who dared to challenge Trump’s hatred.
This is a chance for those who are against injustice to stand against Uber and prove a point of unity. With Uber offering cheaper fares, will you be willing to pay more to a regular taxi and not ride with Uber to show that you are on the side of justice, even if it means being hit in the pocket book?
There is also Uber’s competitor Lyft that has given $1 million to the American Civil Liberties Union, which successfully fought for a stay of the ban and secured the release of refugees who had been stranded in transit.
So if a customer does not want to pay the higher taxi fare, they still can ride with Lyft. As for the Uber drivers that have nothing to do with the decisions being made by Uber, they can move to Lyft so they can continue making a living.
One thing is for sure though, an example should be made out of Uber. It is obvious that Donald Trump as other evil plans up his sleeves, for those who are against his Hitler’s style of Government should take action before the horse is out the gate. It should be made clear that any corporation that supports Donald Trump’s evil will not be supported by the people.
Boycott Uber. #DeleteUber
