Uber and Lyft drivers in California went on strike March 25 to protest a pay cut by Uber.
More than 10,000 drivers from the two companies were expected to participate in the 25-hour work stoppage, ride-share advocates said. Rideshare Drivers United asked Uber to reverse its announcement of a 25 percent wage cut and asked all ride-share platforms to guarantee drivers a $28 minimum hourly rate. The “alt-labor” union estimated that 10,000 drivers would strike and 500 would participate in a rally in Redondo Beach. The union says it has between 2,800 and 3,000 members.
