Drivers working for ride-share applications such as Uber and Lyft protested in New York on Wednesday, demanding a living wage.
«They cut the rate recently, this year, actually and it was a significant change in my earnings,» said Mustafa, an Uber driver protesting in front of the company's headquarters. «This year, with this pay, I think I will not be able to have even my medical insurance or any... Еще benefits.»
Uber, the leading ride-hailing application, is set to hold its IPO by May 10, with a valuation expected to be between $80 and $91 billion. The company cut the percentage earned by drivers in 2019, whereby drivers must work longer hours to earn the same amount. The decision sparked protests in cities around the world.
