Uber drivers are planning to take to the streets on Nov. 29 as part of a broader protest calling for a $15 hourly minimum wage.

"Hundreds" of drivers will protest alongside fast food workers, airport employees, and home care aides for what is being billed as a "Day of Disruption," according to Fight for 15, the group organizing the effort.

In San Francisco, Uber's hometown, drivers are planning to march at the airport with signs that say, "Your Uber Driver is Arriving Striking." In other cities, drivers will idle their cars or march with low wage workers from other sectors.
