Wu is a Shanghai-based driver for a cab-hailing app. Recently, he picked up a woman and drove her to her office. However, the woman did not immediately pay the taxi fare through the app on her phone; she did eventually pay, but the payment came a day late. Wu tried calling the woman several times, but no one answered. Wu then decided to hunt the woman down at her work. To Wu’s surprise, the HR manager of the company not only helped him to find the woman, he also fired her on the spot.
This story has become a hot topic in Shanghai HR circles. Some people think it was not fair for the girl to get fired for not paying a taxi fare, but others argue that honesty is essential in the workplace; her dishonesty could affect her performance at work. Many believe that the woman really intended to pay the fare but just forgot about it. They think it is unjust to fire her for such a minor mistake.
What do you think?

Fire her the second time. Pretend to over-look. There are many pretentious debtors in our business world.

Firing her seems un-lawful. She did pay the tab, the next day albeit but she did pay. If the taxi company had a problem they should have sued her for the 36yuan
I am me and that is something you will never be, no matter how hard you try!!

Everyone ends up looking petty and small-minded out of this.
The woman, her employer, and the taxi driver.

Some questions arise out of this.
36RMB is a small amount of money.
Did the woman not have this in her purse?
I find it hard to believe that she would be out at work without any cash.
Could she not go to borrow this from a colleague when she arrived at her office?
Does no-one think it creepy that a woman be stalked AND her HR manager collude in this?
Was the company looking for any reason to fire the woman and just used this as an excuse?
