Uber Asks Drivers to Pay $115 for a Shot at Extra Halloween Earnings

Alex Rosenblat

The Next Web cites D&S researcher Alex Rosenblat’s blog post on deceptive advertising.

“One damning critique, from NYC-based technology ethnographer Alex Rosenblat, argues that the format of the offer is deceptive, as the headline (‘Celebrate Halloween early by earning 33% more’) is larger and bolder than the rest of the copy, which clarifies that this is at the expense of $115 from the previous week’s earnings.”
