NYC Sets Minimum Wage For Uber, Lyft Drivers


New York City’s Taxi and Limousine Commission voted Tuesday to set a minimum hourly wage for Uber and Lyft drivers.

The new rules passed by the commission set the minimum wage at $17.22 an hour and make New York the first U.S. city to establish a minimum pay rate for those drivers, the Independent Drivers Guild said in a statement.

The new minimum pay rules will go into effect at the end of the year and are expected to raise pay by $9,600 annually for drivers, according to an analysis by the Taxi and Limousine Commission.
