  5. Long Island
    I would like to organize a Uber/Lyft Long Island strike to protest the extremely low rates on Long Island. The are roughly 1/3 of what they are in NYC and the Hamptons with a similar cost of living. We as drivers cannot continue to work for these extremely low wages. I have been doing many rides...
