Uber, Lyft drivers plan demonstration, work stoppage in Chicago
Hundreds of ride-hailing drivers plan to converge on Chicago City Hall Wednesday afternoon to rally for higher wages, and, in a show of solidarity, thousands of others plan to stop picking up passengers.
The demonstration is being coordinated by Chicago Rideshare Advocates, a nonprofit group of about 400 Chicago ride-hail drivers.
Martin said customers could feel the effect, but it's unlikely anyone seeking a ride will be too put off. At last glance there were more than 80,000 ride-hailing drivers in Chicago, he said.
