[UPDATE: Lyft Loses Court Challenge]

The regulations, enforced by The New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission, rule contractors working for the companies must be paid "a living wage" of at least $17.22 an hour.

In the three months since that law took effect, drivers have earned an additional $56 million, according to Politico.

    Its really sad that normal folks were taken advantage by uber in ny specially since they were tricked by the false news a few years back of an uber driver in ny earning 86,000 dollars!!!!!! This tricked thousands of people to think they could also earn 86,000 dollars and their financial problems would be solved. It turned out to be fake news but new york officials took many years to exposed the crime and fine 20 million dollars that included loan shark auto loan tactics.
