Chicago rideshare drivers stage strike over unfair wages

Thousands of ride-share drivers in Chicago and across the nation shut down their apps today in a strike. Drivers have accused both Uber & Lyft of offering unfair wages and taking the majority of their ride commissions. Many say they drive to supplement their income, while so many others do drive as their full-time job.

The Justice for App Workers organization, a grassroots group that began on Facebook, is asking companies like Uber and Lyft to provide a living wage, a safe working environment, healthcare, the right to form a union and reliable bathroom access.
