This guy was able to "steal" 5 million chase UR. He's a security researcher and responsibly informed Chase. Chase compensated him by closing down his (and his family's) accounts.
Unbelievable.

And now some actual justification on the substance of what Ghosn was saying:

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-06-14/nissan-email-trail-casts-new-light-on-takedown-of-carlos-ghosn

On a side note, I feel bad for him to come back to his home country only to see it totally fall apart.

Lebanese court determined that Ghosn cannot be prosecuted for dealing with an enemy over his visit to Israel 13 years ago, due to the expiration of the statute of limitations.

If they would have better paying jobs they wouldn't be uber drivers, if uber would be forced to give all the benefits they wouldn't be able to hire so many drivers so easily, currently anyone that's out of a job can easily become a uber driver till they find something better which is great

The passing of California's Proposition 22 was unfortunate. Here's why (in order of increasing length, IIRC):
https://www.curbed.com/2020/11/california-uber-lyft-prop-22.html

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/10/25/why-ubers-desperate-prop-22-bad-drivers-and-society

https://knock-la.com/the-case-for-voting-no-on-ca-prop-22-a64d25b2828d

They poured hundreds of millions of dollars into Prop 22. It was impossible to walk a few blocks in CA without seeing a Billboard or turn on the TV or streaming platforms without seeing an ad.

What all these article are ignoring is individual agency. Even if what they are saying about the awful condition for Uber drivers is 100% true, it should be up to individuals to decide if they want to drive under those conditions.

For many if not most of the drivers, they wouldn't be doing it if they had other job options.
