How to use uneven in a sentence?

  1. Harlan Yu of Upturn Research:

    What Seattle and other police departments across the country are doing right now is creating an uneven playing field where officers get a structural advantage where they get to view footage and other eyewitnesses don’t.

  2. Wes Moore:

    It’s impossible not to think about our past and our path. We’re blocks away from the Annapolis docks, where so many enslaved people arrived in this country against their will, and we are standing in front of a capitol that was built by their hands. We have made uneven and unimaginable progress since then.

  3. Simon Birrell:

    Building robots for agriculture is very different to building it for factories, until you're out in the field, you don't realize how robust it needs to be — it gets banged and crashed, you go over uneven surfaces, you get rained on, you get dust, you get lightning bolts.

  4. Mackenzie Kelly:

It’s important to maintain equity and fairness in pay across the board.

  5. Jeffrey Halley:

    What are disturbing oil markets the most... is the Delta-variant Covid-19 strain which has vast swathes of the planet in its grip, that is increasing fears that the global recovery will stutter and become very uneven, thus reducing oil consumption even as OPEC + continues to increase production.
