Will the Last One to Leave Uber Please Turn Out the Lights?

One universal fact in life is that you can only get so far being an asshole. Travis Kalanick found that out this week. This whole brow beat employees into slavery thing is so very Walmart, most likely the next company to have an Uber fail.
