Uber and Lyft executives make billions. But what about drivers?
Drivers are standing up to demand a fair return on the billions they make for Uber & Lyft:
Uber and Lyft must pay drivers a livable hourly rate (after expenses).
Clear policies on wages, tips, fare breakdowns and deactivations.
Such as disability, workers comp, retirement, health care, death benefits, and paid time off.
Voice at work
A recognized independent worker organization, the freedom to stand together without fear of retaliation and a fair and transparent process for deactivations.
Sign on now to demand that Uber and Lyft drivers get a fair share!
Gig Workers Rising is a campaign that partners with app-based workers to inform them and support them in their demands that include those above.
Why is this needed?
Uber and Lyft drivers provide services that so many of us rely on every day to move through our lives — rides to school, work, medical appointments, social events and safe passage back home. Drivers pour themselves into their work, doing one of the most dangerous jobs in our society to ensure that every passenger arrives safely at their destination.
But Uber and Lyft exclude rideshare drivers from basic worker protections. Without these protections, drivers face low wages and labor abuses. They have no way to organize and are denied crucial benefits like health insurance, disability, overtime or workers comp. Drivers face unsafe working conditions and no recourse when they're deactivated.
Drivers take all the risk, executives get all the reward.
