Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

STRIKE! Uber, Lyft, ALL App Drivers on Wed, May 8th, 7AM-9AM!

Our Uber, Lyft, Juno, Via driver members voted YES to STRIKE in solidarity with Uber, Lyft, and all App Driver Brothers and Sisters across the World on Wednesday, May 8th!

Apps Off! In NYC, we will STRIKE from 7AM to 9AM and then Rally at 1PM outside Uber/Lyft/TLC Headquarters!

STRIKE UBER, LYFT, ALL APP COMPANIES!
WEDNESDAY, MAY 8th
From 7AM-9AM
NYC-Wide

The day before Uber joins Lyft selling shares on the New York Stock Exchange, strike in solidarity with fellow drivers from Los Angeles to London!

And then we rally...
RALLY AT UBER/LYFT/TLC HEADQUARTERS
WEDNESDAY, MAY 8th
1:00pm
Address: 31-00 47th Avenue

Wall Street investors are telling Uber and Lyft to cut down on driver income, stop incentives, and go faster to Driverless Cars. Uber and Lyft wrote that they think they pay drivers too much already. With the IPO (Initial Public Offering: when a Company first sells shares on the stock market), Uber's corporate owners are set to make billions, all while drivers are left in poverty and to go bankrupt. So Stand Up, Stand Up, NYC! Join the world-wide movement of fellow drivers and  SAY NO TO UBER GREED! Check out our Strike Page at nytwa.org/strike for more information!

STRIKE DEMANDS

1. In solidarity with our driver brothers and sisters fighting to stop poverty and debt and in support of their national demands!

2. To win Job Security for App Drivers by ending Unfair Deactivations in NYC!

3. To secure a Livable Income by ending the scam of Upfront Pricing where passengers pay more but drivers earn less. Regulate the fare Uber/Lyft/Juno/Via charge passengers, and cap the Companies' commission, guaranteeing 80-85% of the fare to the driver!

Spread the word and see you on the streets May 8th!

NYC IS STRIKE READY! TOMORROW Uber - Lyft - Juno - Via Apps OFF 7AM-9AM!
