Uber drivers launched a 24-hour strike over a lawsuit Uber filed to stop a $1,000 raise approved by the Taxi Limousine Commission.
The TLC originally approved the raise of $1,000 per month to make up for steep inflation costs. However, the rideshare company shortly sued the commission in order to prevent it.
Uber drivers now say they lost out on about $12 million in raises from Dec. 19 to New Year’s Day.
This is the second strike performed by Uber drivers recently. The first took place on Dec. 19, the same day the Taxi Limousine Commission-approved raise was supposed to take effect.
