The unthinkable has occurred: Uber has compromised with a local government, according to a report from The Wall Street Journal. Uber has agreed to suspend its operations for three months in Portland, Oregon, as the company works with local regulators to reach a legal solution. This comes weeks after Portland’s city government sued the ridesharing company for violating local taxi ordinances. Sound the bells because an Uber-government alliance is a miracle and an angel just got its wings. Or something.
