Uber is reportedly set to employ people convicted of being prostitutes in a bold new scheme designed to give reformed criminals the chance to turn their lives around.
The taxi app is preparing to change its rules in some American states so people with non-violent convictions can begin working as drivers.
This means that ex-sex workers can take to the road, as well as people who have convictions for harassment, resisting arrest, petty theft or minor property damage.
The rules have already come into force in California but will be rolled out in Connecticut at the beginning of next year.
On his Facebook page, founder Travis Kalanick wrote: “Millions of Americans have served their time and want to earn an honest living.
“To break the cycle of recidivism, we need to give them a second chance.”
Anyone who has been convicted of a more serious crime within the past seven years will still be banned from driving for Uber.
David McGuire, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Connecticut, told the Hartford Courant that Uber’s move would steer people away from a life of crime.
He said: “It’s good for everybody and it’s good for public safety too.”
“When people with a criminal record are able to get employment, it stabilizes their lives … and they’re less likely to offend again.”
