Uber announced over the weekend that its president, Jeff Jones, is resigning. Jones was hired just six months ago.

He's among several executives who have left the company in recent weeks as Uber grapples with a number of controversies — over how the company handles sexual harassment, a fake app created to evade regulators and a recent cut in fares.

Here & Now's Robin Young speaks with CBS News’ Jill Schlesinger (@jillonmoney), host of “Jill on Money” and the podcast “Better Off,” about what's behind the latest resignation.
