Uber Allows and Encourages Tips

Screen Shot 2017-07-17 at 5.11.29 PM

Uber tomorrow is going to match every tip given to drivers. Now, this has to be an in-app tip. Not give the driver $5 and Uber matches it.

I’ve called for Uber to allow this for the longest time. Their CEO was against this and boom – he was asked to leave the board of his own company for basically not listening to what the users wanted. Also – the company was found to have rampant sexual harassment claims that were ignored by management. Enter tips and Uber finally has some good PR.

Good on you Uber!

  • Wait—the tipping will help with sexual harassment? I’m sooo confused.

    • Tipping will not remove the sexual harassment but it’s a step of finally some good PR. In a moment where the company is bleeding badly from wounds – it needed to find something positive. This “tipping” was something that went against the founders wishes. They still have a LONG way to go. But a new board and a new CEO will be a good start along with listening to customers.

    • It helps with their “image problem”
