Lyft agrees to pay its drivers the minimum wage in New York

When first introduced, the rules didn’t sit well with Lyft, Uber and other firms. Lyft told Engadget at the time that the rules would incentivize shorter rides and discourage trips from boroughs outside of Manhattan. Another organization, the Independent Drivers Guild, said contract drivers in the city were earning just $11.90 per hour before the law went into effect.
