Dozens of Philadelphia taxi and limousine drivers bombarded Democrats as they headed into Uber's Democratic National Convention party Monday night, calling for the ride sharing company to reinstate 17 workers it deactivated from its app and offer better treatment to all its drivers.

The picketers, which included local disability advocates, told those entering an Uber-sponsored party at the DoubleTree by Hilton at Broad and Walnut streets that attending the party was supporting a company that doesn't care about workers' rights – contrary to the Democratic party's platform.
