The Median Wage for Uber and Lyft Drivers in Massachusetts Is LESS than Minimum Wage After Expenses

Massachusetts rideshare drivers with the Drivers Demand Justice coalition, including Local 32BJ of the Service Employees International Union, the International Association of Machinists, the Chinese Progressive Association, the True Alliance Center, the Merrimack Valley Project, the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center, the Union of Minority Neighborhoods, and Latinos Unidos en Massachusetts are championing the historic Rideshare Drivers Justice Bill. If signed into law, the bill would make Massachusetts the nationwide leader for worker rights within the deeply exploitative app-based transportation industry.

Thousands of rideshare workers in Massachusetts currently live at or near poverty levels. Last year, a coalition of worker and community groups fought back and prevailed in court against a ballot initiative proposal put forth by rideshare companies that would have further lowered standards for rideshare workers in Massachusetts.

As the courts continue to consider various issues with regard to regulations on the emerging industry, drivers are taking to the streets, and now to the State House, to demand immediate action be taken to improve their standards of living and to secure a process for workers to organize. In the Rideshare Driver Justice Bill, filed as S.666 and H.1099, drivers are demanding rights that they have nearly unanimous agreement on, including the need for higher wages, discrimination protections, and a clear path to unionization in order to collectively bargain for additional improvements with the companies.

The festivities were a sign of momentum shared elsewhere across the ballot-question landscape as an end-of-day deadline further clarified what’s still in play, turning up the heat on lawmakers who may be mulling eleventh-hour compromises.
