Friday Headlines – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana weather



INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at some of Friday’s business headlines.

Uber, Lyft

A California law firm has more than 750 separate sexual assault cases involving Uber or Lyft.

In terms of the type of sexual assault allegations, it ranges from inappropriate and sexual comments while passengers are locked inside the car to kidnapping and rape, according to Fox Business.

Some of the changes the company is pushing for include installing a camera inside the car that is not controlled by the driver, as well as better driver screening and training.

Restaurant automation

Restaurants are starting to hire robots instead of people demanding higher wages.

Companies are tired of waiting for workers and are turning more and more to automation.

The trend has swept through the restaurant industry as labor shortages hamper hiring.

Economic data suggests the shift to automation has been underway for months now.


Twitter is exploring new ways for users to control who can see their tweets, including a way for people to limit their audience to “trusted friends” and see that group’s tweets first.

Twitter is asking for comments on the changes.


Toyota, at the top of GM’s sales in the United States, is expected to be the best-selling American automaker.

Toyota sold 688,813 vehicles in the second quarter, surpassing GM sales of 688,236 vehicles – only about 500 more vehicles.

The last time GM wasn’t the best-selling automaker for a quarter was when Ford beat them in 1998, Edmunds reports.
