Uber wasn’t about that life, though. Despite the fact the company employs many immigrants, the ride-sharing company wanted its coins and issued this statement during the strike:

Breaking a strike is a no-no, so folks on social media went in on Uber and created the #deleteuber movement. Folks left and right have been deleting the app in favor of it’s competitor, Lyft.

Uber’s CEO,Travis Kalanick, who was also named as one of people giving Trump economic advice, did issue a Mea Culpa of sorts via their facebook page. You can read the full post HERE.

In any event, aside from Lyft, there is a black-owned ride sharing app you should consider. Moovn, the brainchild of owner and CEO, Godwin Gabriel, launched in 2015 and is steadily gaining ground in major cities across the US.
