Uber and Lyft drivers are planning a two-hour strike around the world on Wednesday. The driver’s group are protesting the companies’ payment and labor practices, and they hope to stymie the ride-hail apps during the morning rush hour. On Thursday Uber is to debut on the public trading markets and is valued at $90 billion! Drivers in New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and Los Angeles are scheduled to go on strike from 7AM to 9AM on Wednesday, May 8th, according to the New York Taxi Workers Alliance.
