The Company Contrast – Uber

Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is Uber (1-liberal).

Uber is an online transportation company that allows consumers to request a driver to come pick them up through its smartphone app.  Uber is also the parent company of Otto, deCarta, Geometric Intelligence, and more. Even though Uber is a popular way to get places, using their app undermines your values based on their continuous support of the leftist agenda.

Uber scores a 1 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of its support for the liberal think tank CAP, which supports same-sex marriage and is pro-choice. Uber also contributes to different organizations that advocate for sanctuary cities.  To see all the reasons Uber scores so poorly, you can click on their company page here.

Fortunately, when you need a ride somewhere, but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative views, there are better alternatives out there. Try carpooling with friends or get someone you know to drive you as a favor, and for longer trips try renting a car from Budget. These are great alternatives to use without sacrificing your values. The businesses’ neutral stance on issues and commitment to its customers is why 2ndVote has deemed them better alternatives to Uber.
