Uber CEO Makes New Year’s Resolution While Stuck in Hot Water

 Travis Kalanick ,   UBER

Uber fetched a lot of hell lately, from lawsuits and criticism. However, according to the Globe and Mail, Uber has promised to mend its ways and become more “humble” in the New Year. Some of the most serious accusations against the company come from Asia. CEO Travis Kalanick may face a 2 year prison sentence if he sets foot in South Korea, where Uber allegedly violated laws against using rental cars to give rides. In New Delhi, service has been suspended on allegations that an Uber driver raped a female passenger. A petition garnered 62, 000 signatures in outrage, mainly because Uber did not do the same 3 step background check in Asia that it does in the West.

Ian Black, who is head of Uber in Toronto. published his New Year’s resolution that the company should be “more humble, ” but are other Uber heads listening? Kalanick wrote in a blog post, “Taking swift action is where Uber shines, and we will be making changes in the months ahead. Done right, it will lead to a smarter and more humble company that sets new standards in data privacy, gives back more to cities we serve and defines and refines our company effectively.”
