There's not enough developers to hire, so you have to resort to shady practises to hire them. My company hasn't had a single good legal candidate for our Java backend position apply in over two years, so we got creative.
Did it ever occur to you that maybe your company is crooked, sucks, isn't paying enough, or all of the above?
Working around the legislation is the business-like thing
No, the business-like thing is to embrace regulation and turn it to your advantage, the way the taxi companies are seeking to do. Life's a lot easier if you can get government to shut down potential competitors.
I agree with the judge on one point: if they were independent contractors, they would be free to pickup passengers not using Uber.
If Uber allowed that, they'd be allowing street hails, which would in effect make them a taxi company. Regulators have been operating stings lately where somebody will wheedle their way into an Uber car without using the app, and then regulators fine the hell out of everyone for violating the law.
Right, that's the exact story the officer, Darren Wilson gave. And indeed, it was corroborated, by his girlfriend who wasn't even there. That's about all we know, because the case was not even allowed to go to trial. These are the kind of fundamental injustices people are upset about.
A forensic examination by the Obama Justice Department, an entity presumably not interested in covering up for a bad cop shooting an innocent black victim, found evidence consistent with Wilson's version of events. You don't have a trial when there's no evidence that a crime occurred.

Sounds like all that's happened is that Amazon has found a new firing offense.
I think it's obvious those particular messages shouldn't be an issue here. Last I checked ex post facto is still not allowed. My current understanding is that there have been messages found that were classified at the time that she transmitted them using her personal server. At the very least she deserves official censure for failing to follow appropriate State Department procedures. I think Treason is probably overstating the case as would be violations of the Patriot Act or Espionage Act, however the title 18 violation currently looks legit and that's pretty serious stuff.
It's also clear from this story that she's given thumb drives containing the emails in question, plus many other as-yet-unexamined ones, to people who don't have security clearances. That's the kind of thing that got David Petraeus convicted. And in his case, the documents were the lowest level of classification, CONFIDENTIAL, and not TOP SECRET.
