Why Uber and Lyft drivers are striking


Rideshare Drivers Go On Strike On Wednesday, May 8, 2019, rideshare drivers have begun striking around the world – including major cities in the U.S. The rideshare drivers are demanding livable incomes, regulated fares, and job security, among other things. Drivers are powering off their rideshare apps and holding rallies in strategic locations. Just a few months ago, in March of this year, rideshare drivers went on strike in response to pay cuts. The strikes in the Los Angeles area have been organized by Rideshare Drivers United. This group is making demands for transparent/speedy appealing process for deactivated drivers, an hourly minimum wage, a commission cap on earnings, and a driver representative on Uber and Lyft boards.

Why Uber and Lyft drivers are going on strike

Why Uber and Lyft drivers are striking Rideshare Drivers United published a Drivers’ Bill of Rights that clearly outlines their demands. Their demands are separated into four categories, which include fair pay, TNC transparency, a voice on the job, and community standards. Besides the demands that were mentioned above, Rideshare Drivers United is also making the following demands:
  • Pay rideshare drivers per mile and minute rates when going to pick up the passenger.
  • Set hourly minimum wage before expenses
  • Set a surcharge in rideshare fare to include the price of gas
  • Allow drivers to access information relating to the estimated fare payment as well as trip destination prior to accepting and initiating the trip
  • Show full fare breakdown including information on Uber and Lyft’s take on passengers’ trip receipt
  • Recognition of the organization
  • The right to organize without any retaliation
  • Vehicle caps to address traffic and carbon emissions
  • Set emission standards for new vehicles added to the rideshare service
  • Share vehicle data with authorities for traffic management

Uber, Lyft strike: Drivers plan walkout to protest low pay

Why Uber and Lyft drivers are going on strike According to reports, the strikes were planned to occur before Uber – the leading rideshare company in the industry – went public. Making the company public would represent a significant monetary gain for executives, while drivers – the people that make the company successful – continue earning little to nothing. The strike calls for drivers to log off their rideshare apps and be unavailable to accept rides; the strike also calls for regular passengers to choose alternative methods of transportation instead of ordering Uber or Lyft rides.

Although the strike is predominantly in response to Uber’s actions, riders from many different rideshare platforms are coming together to make their voices heard.
