Ride-hail drivers go on strike in America
Los Angeles ride-hail drivers working for Uber and Lyft turned off their apps for 25 hours in protest of low wages. The organising group Rideshare Drivers United said the strike was triggered by Uber’s decision to reduce per-mile pay. Drivers have complained that their working experience in these companies has become worse over the time. In many cities, drivers have organised informal groups to defend their rights within public authorities. In 2018, New York City passed a minimum wage of $17,22 per hour after drivers’ protests.
