Re: “Gentrification Station: Why Oakland Still Says NO to Uber

The author fails to mention Uber has reduced it's planned workforce in Oakland by 2700 jobs, or 90%. Uber didn't specify why, but most people speculate it's the large number of demands made by the community.

The idea of forcing Uber to "hire and train Oakland residents for those high-paying tech jobs" is a ridiculous burden to place on a company that is free to locate elsewhere. There are tons of "techies" who live in Oakland and commute to tech companies on the peninsula, preventing Uber from locating here will not stop the gentrification.
