Passengers use Uber ratings to mandate beliefs.
My Uber rating went down 3 points last night because why? Because whenever passengers got in the car and said “Happy Australia Day”, I said “It’s not Australia Day”.
Thereupon most responded like I was introducing an unwanted “political conversation” and reported me for unprofessionalism. In fact empathy and respect are deeper rooted than political opinion and more connected to personal values and intrinsic beliefs.
