Finally an organized effort to fight lower Uber rates but it is happening in of all places, New York City! The highest Uber rates in the world are in New York City. After the recent cut the New York City rates are still almost 6 times more than Detroit and almost 3 times that of Orlando. No other City has been able to get a protest going past half a day. One of the only Uber markets in America that pays more than minimum wage is New York City and they are the ones complaining the loudest.
Protest are happening all over the world but Uber could not give a shit.
A pretty big, pretty loud protest against Uber today in NYC.
