Uber Drivers Press New York City For Wage Guarantee

Posted on March 21, 2018

Fresh from a victory on tipping, the group representing more than 60,000 Uber and Lyft drivers in New York City is asking they get a raise.

The Independent Drivers Guild, which was founded with Uber's support but is sometimes at odds with the company, wants the Taxi and Limousine Commission to extend its regulatory hand to drivers' pay. On March 20 it delivered a petition with more than 15,000 signatures asking the city agency to put pay schedules and compensation rules under its authority—and guarantee a minimum wage drivers would earn while transporting passengers.
