Email from San Francisco Symphony last night touts a partnership with.....Uber. "Ride with Uber and support the Symphony at the same time!" says the subject line.
I. Don't. Think. So.
SFS might not realize that Uber is widely detested, considered anti-labor (remember, they tried to pretend that their drivers aren't employees), and considered a very bad symbol of the so-called "sharing" economy.
As an organization whose major assets are the unionized musicians, in a city known for its leftist politics, the orchestra might want to think about who they might attract and who they might drive away with this so-called partnership.
I'm certainly not going to touch it. I get to SFS from the east bay using a combination of car, AC Transit bus, and/or BART, and it's going to stay that way.
