Minnesota lawmakers strike minimum pay deal for Uber, Lyft drivers

·1 min

Minnesota government officials have reached an agreement with rideshare companies to establish minimum wage standards for drivers. The agreement comes after months of discussions between the state officials and the companies, who had threatened to withdraw from Minnesota due to a proposed ordinance that would provide more protections for rideshare drivers. The statewide minimum wage for rideshare drivers will be increased, resulting in a 20% pay increase for drivers in the state. The bill also includes a provision for strong insurance coverage for drivers.
