This week on the Working Lunch podcast, the team at Align Public Strategies discuss Yelp’s new feature, the “Racist Behavior Alert.”
Yelp was in the news earlier this week as the crowd-sourced restaurant review platform announced it will include accusations of discrimination or alleged instances of racism by a brand in their restaurant listings. This new feature is called the “Racist Behavior Alert” and will show potential customers when a restaurant has had a race-related complaint on the platform.
The Working Lunch team discuss this potentially seismic development and the boon it could be for anti-industry activists and detractors.
Additionally, the team discusses the private sector continuing to advance the portable benefits issue down the field. They take a look at Mastercard’s benefit initiative for independent contractors and the impact it may have on the employee marketplace.
Working Lunch will have those stories and the legislative scorecard.
